Bowden Goes Back to Work

By  | 

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Bobby Bowden has signed a one-year
contract to coach a 34th season at Florida State.

The 79-year-old Bowden signed the agreement Wednesday. It's worth just under $2.5 Million.

FSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher must replace Bowden by
January 2011 or the school will owe him $5 million.

Bowden's 382 career coaching wins are one fewer than Penn
State's Joe Paterno, the all-time leader among major college
coaches. Paterno, 82, recently signed a three-year extension.
