Lead Story

Legendary Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, according to multiple reports.

“I’ve always tried to serve God’s purpose for my life, on and off the field, and I am prepared for what is to come,” Bowden said in a statement shared with multiple news organizations. “My wife Ann and our family have been life’s greatest blessing.

“I am at peace.”

Now 91 years old, Bowden spent 34 years as Florida State head football coach, winning 377 games, two national championships and 12 ACC titles. From 1987 to 2000, his Seminoles finished ranked in the top 5 every year — a feat unlikely to be duplicated.
