The world of college football lost one of its legendary figures on Sunday. Former Florida State head coach and Hall of Famer Bobby Bowden passes away at the age of 91.

Less than three weeks ago, Bowden and his family released a statement in the Tallahassee Democrat, saying that he had been diagnosed with a terminal medical condition.

“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 in the statement. “My wife Ann and our family have been life’s greatest blessing. I am at peace.”

Bowden was the head coach at Florida State from 1976-2009.

In over three decades at Florida State, Bowden compiled a 304-97-4 record and won national championships in 1993 and 1999. His Seminoles teams claimed 12 ACC titles and appeared in a bowl game in all but three seasons.

Prior to taking over at Florida State, Bowden was the head coach at West Virginia from 1970-75 and had a 42-26 record. He was also the leader at Howard from 1959-62 and owned a 31-6 mark.

Bowden’s coaching tree includes names like Mark Richt, Kirby Smart, Manny Diaz, Chuck Amato and Skip Holtz, among many others.

Bowden was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
