Bowden to make announcement on his coaching future

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Bobby Bowden says there will be an announcement on his coaching future at Florida State today.

The legendary 80-year-old Florida State coach met with Florida State president T.K. Wetherell and athletic director Randy Spetman for an hour Monday.

Bowden volunteered that statement on his career at a Monday booster luncheon.

Bowden's 388 career wins are second only to Penn State's Joe Paterno among major college coaches.

The winningest coach in Atlantic Coast Conference history, Bowden teams put together the most dominant run in college football history between 1987 and 2000 with 14 consecutive finishes in the nation's Top Five and a pair of national titles.
