Bobby Bowden was bornon 8 November 1929 in Birmingham, Alabama, American. Robert Cleckler Bowden, popularly known as "Bobby" is one of the legendary football coaches who tasted great success throughout his career. He coached the Florida State University (FSU) team for nearly seven decades during which the team registered more than three hundred victories, breaking all the past records. The FSUs dominated the college football with their winning streaks, thanks to their now-retired coach Bobby Bowden. If not for him, the FSU would not have come this far, but, coach Bowden does not take the entire credit to himself. He is equally grateful to his FSU team as it was their sheer talent and brilliance which helped them put up such an extraordinary achievement. However, there is no denying the fact that, it is the coach who recognizes talents required to build strong and potentially winning teams and Bowden excelled in the job. Despite his busy and hectic career, he finds time for church and is a charitable person. Bowden is a man who makes sure he has enough time for family and friends as well outside his. His congeniality, charm and generosity render him a very pleasant and down-to-earth persona despite his larger-than-life image.
