USF head football coach Willie Taggart will discuss leadership on and off the field during “Locker Room Lunch” at USF St. Petersburg April 19 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the University Student Center Ballroom. The lunch is free and open to the public.

Taggart took over as Bulls head coach in December after three seasons as head coach at his alma mater, Western Kentucky, where he led a dramatic turnaround for the Hilltoppers. Before WKU, Taggart enjoyed a successful run at Stanford, helping build the Cardinal into a national power.

A Bradenton native, Taggart is known for his enthusiasm and high energy. He will be joined at the lunch by Jim Louk, the Voice of the Bulls. The program will follow an informal talk show format, with questions from the audience.

The event is presented by Interim Regional Chancellor Bill Hogarth and USFSP Student Government, with support from Wells Fargo. Additional support comes from the Tampa Bay Times, Harvard Jolly and Progress Energy. Space is limited so reserve your spot today.

“We are excited to welcome Willie Taggart to USF St. Petersburg,” Hogarth said. “He has brought a new level of intensity to the Bulls football program, and he’s a great role model off the field as well as on.”
