Hall of Fame college football coach Bobby Bowden has been diagnosed with a terminal medical condition, he and his family announced in a statement to the Tallahassee Democrat on Wednesday.
"I've always tried to serve God's purpose for my life, on and off the field, and I am prepared for what is to come," Bowden said in the statement. "My wife Ann and our family have been life's greatest blessing. I am at peace."
Bowden, 91, coached at Florida State for 34 seasons before retiring in 2009 and is the second-winningest coach in Division I history with 357 victories.
