|Legendary Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden and his family announced on Wednesday that the 91-year old has been diagnosed with a terminal health condition, the Tallahassee Democrat first reported.
"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 via a statement. "My wife Ann and our family have been life's great blessing. I am at peace."
The family has asked for privacy as Bowden deals with his health.
I'm an FSU alum and fan, but it's hard to argue that he is on a very short list of greatest college football coaches ever. 14 straight season being ranked in the top 4 will never be duplicated. If you've never seen his biography on the ACC Network, you should try to catch it.
