Florida State's search to replace recently fired coach Willie Taggart has already begun and two candidates for the job could be current SEC Coaches, according to recent odds.

One of those candidates, Kentucky coach Mark Stoops, is listed at 4/1. Stoops was the defensive coordinator at Florida State from 2010–2012.

The other candidate is a little strange as it's former Florida State and current Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher who has 15/1 odds.

Here are the complete odds, according to BetOnline:

Matt Campbell 3/1
Mark Stoops 4/1
James Franklin 5/1
Bob Stoops 5/1
P.J. Fleck 6/1
Urban Meyer 6/1
Josh Heupel 7/1
Dino Babers 10/1
Matt Rhule 10/1
Jimbo Fisher 15/1
Jim Harbaugh 20/1
Bobby Bowden 50/1

After what Gus has done with a freshman QB he should take the job and flip Auburn the bird on the way out. There is no one better available right now

Campbell will get 1st call, then Ruhle, then maybe Stoops. I think Stoops will be 3rd or 4th on the list.

Jimbo is the reason FSU is in this situation and FSU fans all really really appreciate A&M now for taking him and solving this problem. FSU really loves AnM and their fans now so it all makes sense. It’s real love on twitter and many message boards! I really really don’t think they want Jimbo back or if they do then I don’t know.

You put Bobby Bowden in for laughs, but Nick Saban would actually have better odds.

would be awesome to see Jimbo go back to them to see aggie melt... with at being said, they cant afford campbells buyout at Iowa State. Fleck will wait for a bigger job (maybe) you could get stoops from KEntucky, hes done all he can do there... would take vandy coach with him as DC...Franklin aint taking it... Id throw it at Kiffen... prob is they are so far behind on facilities its not even funny... theyre gonna have to drop 100 million on renovations to Football ops and weight room upgrades to get a good guy there... and thats all of the florida schools, its why they are falling behind.. they didnt enter the arms race when they had the money... schools just decided to spend it on something else...

How do you know about falling behind on the facilities?

You are clueless. Stadium and in-door facility are as nice as any Top 10 school right now. Football only facility is in the works. Hell, the marching band facility/practice field is nicer than most schools football practice facility. Fact.

I figure as long as they bring plenty of diapers and someone to change them on the sideline, he could come back. He's only 90

They fire an HC in less than 2 seasons... and they think they're gonna get a blue chip coach to go there???

As long as the money is still green and there's plenty of it, why not?

Wait! What about Gus? Jimbo Fisher...really.

Mark is saying wierd things when they asked him about it. Talking about how the roster is set up for years.. Makes me think hes at least thinking about it.

He is playing the pay raise game. This is coached to him by his agent. People fall for this trick every year. Never learn.

Need to add Norvell, Briles, and Kiffin to the list. Especially if they have Bobby, Jimbo, and Urban with odds.

Bob Stoops has been out long enough. If he still has the drive, that's a good school for him.
