Bowden to Decide

November 30th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Bobby Bowden is still the head football coach at Florida State University this evening, but how much longer is the question. Bowden met with the university president and athletic director this morning. As Mike Vasilinda tells us, another meeting and a decision on Bowdens future is set for Tuesday.

Bobby Bowden got two standing ovations at Mondays booster luncheon. After being whipped by Florida 37-10 on Saturday, Bowden offered this guarantee about Gator Senior Quarter Back Tim Tebow.

I guarantee thats the last time hes going to beat me,” Bowden said.

The coach did confirm a meeting with University President T.K. Wetherell and Athletic Director Randy Spetman.

We talked about my future here at Florida State,” Bowden said. “So tomorrow, were going to meet again. I havent announced whether or not Ill stay here at Florida State.

During the Q & A, Booster Marge Mastermon was in near tears thinking about the end of the Bowden era.

I think hes done a lot for the university,” Mastermon said.

As Bowden signed autographs, seeming less rushed than usual, Athletic Director Spetman was mum.

Its always cordial when you deal with Coach Bowden,” Spetman said.

The hour long meeting took place in the coachs office, which is located behind the scoreboard. A second meeting is set for Tuesday morning.

Bowden continues to say that he, not the University, will decide his future.

Well, I make the decision,” Bowden said. “I make the decision.

Bowden declined to say what time or where Tuesdays meeting will be held.

The Seminoles finished the regular season six and six and are headed to a bowl game. If the Noles are defeated, it will mark Bowdens first losing season since his first year at FSU in 1976.
