Bobby Bowden Visits The Dan Patrick Show

Ex-Florida State Head Football Coach Bobby Bowden has been making his rounds publicizing his new book with Mark Schlabach “Called To Coach“. Normally a book tour regardless to who wrote it is rarely news or noteworthy but Coach Bowden is somewhat letting the skeletons out of the closet on this one. Besides sharing great stories of interactions with other great coaches, his recruitment of prize prep players, and reminiscing on old times. Bowden has been causing quite a stir with his personal recollection of how things ended at Florida State. According to Coach Bowden during his interview with the Dan Patrick Show Friday August 27 “If I had my choice, I would have stayed one more year,” Bowden said. “I felt like I had it in me. I told them.” “I didn’t want to stop coaching but the school forced me out. They had other plans,” Bowden stated “it was the president and the board of trustees specifically that asked me to leave, even though I don’t think all of them wanted that to happen.”

It’s hard to imagine Florida State forcing out the one guy who built the program to national prominence, but according to Bowden it happened. Since he has started talking to the media and the release of the book, FSU officials have been making comments through the media hoping to soften the blow from the bad PR. Audio of Coach Bowden’s interview can be heard below
