Got Bobby's back: Seminoles support Bowden

October 11, 2009

Bowden has been in the middle of a weeklong controversy about his coaching future after the chairman of the university's board of trustees said earlier this week that the 79-year-old coach should retire at the end of the season.

Florida State (2-3, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) is off to its poorest start since Bowden's first year at the school in 1976.

Bowden's 384 coaching wins are the second most in major college history, three fewer than Penn State's Joe Paterno.
