Former Seminoles head coach Bobby Bowden has tested positive for the coronavirus.
ABC 27 spoke to Bowden on Monday, who confirmed the news.
Despite the positive diagnosis, Bowden, 90, said he’s doing pretty good and is waiting to see what’s going to happen.
While he did not say if any of his other household members have also tested positive, Bowden told ABC 27 they are all going to get tested again Monday.
Bowden said he does not know when he contracted it and did not mention when exactly he tested positive.
During his 34 years as Florida State’s head coach he had only one losing season in 1976. From 1987 to 2000, the Seminoles finished every season with at least 10 wins and in the top 5 of the Associated Press College Football Poll, and won the national championship in 1993 and 1999.
Deion Sanders is reportedly getting into the coaching game.
The NFL Hall of Famer has experience coaching in the Under Armour All-American Game and was reportedly a candidate for the open head coaching positions at Arkansas and Florida State this offseason but now it appears the former college and NFL superstar is set to take over his first college football program.
According to Kenn Rashad of HBCU Sports, Sanders will be named the new head coach HBCU program, Jackson State.
You may recall, during an appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show” during Super Bowl week, Sanders expressed his desire to become a head coach.
“I’m going to be a head coach in college football next year,” Sanders said back in February. “I’m that definite. I’m that assured that I am. This is something that is my calling. I’m going to coach college football. Head coach, not coach. Head coach.”
