Coach Bowden: Thank You for Everything, Especially Loyalty

Posted by Jonny Solovy on December-2-2009 Add Comments

Coach Bobby Bowden was officially fired by Florida State University Tuesday afternoon. Yes I said fired and not retired.

Anyone close or near the Florida State program is very aware of the fact that Bobby Bowden wanted to come back for his final season in 2010. He was extremely excited about next season so much that he never even hinted at hanging up his straw hat for good; rather, he made sure Defensive Coordinator Mickey Andrews was appreciated in his last game.

Little did we or Bowden know Andrew's last home game would also be Bobby's. 

No farewell tour, no win one for the gipper speeches, and no more straw hats.

No more "dadgummit" comments during halftime interviews, and no more post game honesty.
