FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) - Former Auburn coach Terry Bowden is hoping
to finally get a championship.

Bowden was introduced Thursday as the head coach at Division II
power North Alabama after a decade-long absence from coaching. He
replaces Mark Hudspeth, who left to become an assistant at
Mississippi State.

The longtime broadcaster and college football columnist said he
got the desire to get back into coaching about two years ago.
Bowden interviewed to replace Rich Rodriguez at his alma mater West
Virginia last year.

Bowden takes over a program that made it to the Division II
semifinals this past season.

Bowden won his first 20 games at Auburn after taking over for
the 1993 season. The Tigers were on probation and not eligible for
postseason play.
