Mark Richt chuckled Thursday when asked about rumors that wide receivers coach Ron Dugans is talking to Florida State about joining Willie Taggart’s staff.

“No, no news on that,” he said, speaking to reporters on a conference call held to wrap up the 2017 season.

Asked directly if Dugans, a FSU alum and Tallahassee native, was staying with Miami, Richt chuckled again.

“Well, he’s still with us, so,” Richt said. “Yeah. All right.”

Last week, the Tallahassee Democrat named Dugans, who played for the Seminoles from 1995-99 and spent 2014-15 as Taggart’s receivers coach at USF, as “the leading candidate” for the job.

In other news:

* Still no word from junior defensive tackles Kendrick Norton and RJ McIntosh and junior cornerback Michael Jackson, who are weighing the possibility of turning pro, but Richt said final word should be “coming up here in the next few days.”
