Florida State Seminoles legendary football coach Bobby Bowden passed away today, according to his son Terry.
Bowden ranks second all time in Division 1 wins.
“My father passed away peacefully early this morning with all six of his children and my mother here by his side,” Bowden’s son Terry said in a statement. “I couldn’t have asked for a better personal mentor than my father. He was a wonderful husband and father, who relied on his strong Christian faith to provide the foundation for his life. I also was fortunate to be raised by a football coach who had a reputation for coaching the right way his entire career. He was admired by everyone who played for him or coached against him.”
Bobby Bowden was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer recently.
He was one of the nicest men I have ever met. Bobby Bowden was a strong man of faith, and an amazing coach. May he Rest In Peace.
