The former Cincinnati Bengal and Seattle Seahawk said he is not sure who FSU will hire to replace Willie Taggart.

“Whoever it is man I know that they’re gonna turn this team around and you know we’re just going to get back to Florida State football that’s what it’s all about,” said Warrick.

The former wide receiver said he would definitely coach in some capacity at Florida State if the opportunity presented it’s self.

He also gave a shoutout to his son who is a senior football player at Marietta High School in Georgia.
