Legendary Florida State University head coach Bobby Bowden, who met with FSU officials on Monday, will meet with them once more on Tuesday. The two parties will then announce their decision on Wednesday.
Bowden and FSU met on Monday at the school. The school administrators basically gave the 80-year old Bowden two choices according to ESPN:
One option involved returning to the sideline in 2010 but with reduced responsibilities that would give offensive coordinator and coach-in-waiting Jimbo Fisher more authority over coaching staff hirings and changes, a source told ESPN.com.
The other option was to resign. However, Bowden repeated several times on Monday that the decision was his, and his alone.
Bowden has been the Seminoles head coach since 1975. He coached at West Virginia before moving down to Florida.
Coach Bowden was the quarterback at the University of Alabama from 1946-1948.
I believe Bowden will return for another year and will give Fisher more, if not all, of the reigns to the program.
