Bowden coaches one more year, and one bad year or two of defense for a loyal guy of a quarter century and and 2 titles and his defense wasn't on the field for all those wife lefts and wide rights.

Soon Joe Pa will call it a day and Bowden added in soem lower division wins, so 3 cheers for Andrews.

No way FSU pasy 5M to Jimbo.

Bowden says he’ll choose new defensive coordinator

Buzz up! PrintTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)—Bobby Bowden sounds like he plans to coach next year at Florida State and says he’ll choose the successor to longtime defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews.

In response to a question on Wednesday’s Atlantic Coast Conference football coaches teleconference, Bowden said he would give his designated successor, offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher, a lot of input in the selection, but that he would make the final decision.

Andrews announced his intention Tuesday to retire after 26 seasons at Florida State.

Bowden, who turns 80 Sunday, is on a year-to-year deal at Florida State with a final option for the 2010 season since the school has promised $5 million to Fisher if he is not the head coach by January 2011.
