One of the truly great coaches of all time.

"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. "My wife Ann and our family have been life's greatest blessing. I am at peace."​
The statement did not disclose any details of his medical condition.​
Bowden, 91, retired from coaching in 2009 after 44 seasons, which included six years at West Virginia University and 34 years at Florida State University.​
He was always a class act. Him and his dad gumit and dag nabbit and shit. Just a great guy. 91 years old though. With all due respect to Coach Bowden is it really an announcement that you're going to die when you're nearly a century old? Shit man most of us never come close to that.
