College Football Hall of Fame Coach Bobby Bowden, Dies at 91
Hall of Fame college football coach Bobby Bowden has died after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Exuding charm and wit, Bowden led Florida State to two national championships and a dozen conference titles during his 34 seasons with the Seminoles. In all, Bowden had 377 wins during his 40 years in major college coaching. His teams, no stranger to scandal, won national titles in 1993 and 1999 and came close several other times. He was selected for the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006. Bobby Bowden was 91 years old.
Bowden remembered as coaching legend on and off the field
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney called Bobby Bowden a “model” that other college coaches should follow, saying he never lost sight of being a man of faith, a great husband and father. Jacksonville Jaguars coach Urban Meyer called him a “legend.” Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher said what he admired most about his former boss was how “normal” he could be. College football mourned the loss of one of its greatest coaches on Sunday. Bowden won 377 games during his coaching career and built Florida State into one of college football’s great dynasties with two national championships.
