Can configure Cisco ACS TACACS+ as 802.1x authentication server?

Hi , we have one Cisco ACS, now TACACS+ is turned on , but radius is not on. Can we use TACACS+ for 802.1x authentication (user id & password) ? I use Campus WLAN wizard to enable 802.1x authentication , only see Radius and LADP can be set. Please advise ,thanks in advance.

No. TACACS is a management AAA protocol. You would need to use RADIUS for client authentication.
