Mike Norvell is Florida State’s new coach.

He takes over a program that has struggled after he led Memphis to one of its greatest seasons.

Florida State made it official Sunday with an announcement.

He will replace Willie Taggart, who was fired last month after going 9-12 as head coach.

The Seminoles, who won the 2013 national title, finished the season becoming bowl eligible at 6-6 under interim coach Odell Haggins.
