I was watching Florida State play in their bowl game the other day when they decided to interview the first lady of Florida State, Head Coach Bobby Bowden’s wife. Bobby Bowden has been coaching college football since before the the AFL or the NFL even existed. And that’s not an exaggeration, he’s been coaching since the 1950’s.
So when they asked Bobby Bowden’s wife how long she would give him the green light to keep coaching as he inches closer and closer to retirement with every knee creaking step, I was surprised to hear the following response from his wife of 55 years:
“He can keep coaching as long he keeps winning.”
So it’s not necessarily win or die for Bobby, but it is win, tie, or divorce.
