'I am at peace': Florida State’s Bobby Bowden diagnosed with terminal medical condition

Bobby Bowden’s faith and spirit remain strong.

However, his weakened body is failing him.

Florida State’s legendary football coach — who turns 92 in November — wife Ann and their family announced Wednesday that Bowden has been diagnosed with a terminal medical condition.

"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 a statement shared with the Tallahassee Democrat. "My wife Ann and our family have been life's greatest blessing.

"I am at peace."

The Bowden family has also asked for privacy as Bowden deals with his health.
