Taggart retains Wells and Mathies

Head football coach Willie Taggart said he would give former coach David Elson’s staff a fair shake.

It looks like he’s sticking to his words.

Western announced today that offensive coordinator Walter Wells and defensive line coach Eric Mathies as the first pieces of Taggart’s announced staff. Wells has served on the Toppers’ staff for seven seasons and Mathies for five.

Western did not specify if more coaches would return, but Taggart said last month that he would interview everyone on Elson’s staff before searching for new people.

UPDATE: According to a university official, Taggart will probably not retain any more of Elson’s staff.
