Florida State University announced today that football head coach Bobby Bowden has signed a one-year contract through January 4, 2010. The terms of the contract remain the same from his 2008 agreement where he was paid a salary just under $2.5 million.
“I am glad to get it signed, up for another year like I said I would do after each year,” Bowden said. “I appreciate the university’s support. We are busy recruiting and looking forward to next season.”
The 2009 season will be Bowden’s 34th as head coach at Florida State. In his 43 years as a collegiate head coach, Bowden has compiled a career record of 382-123-4. He has led the Seminoles to two national championships (1993 & 1999) and the nation’s longest active bowl appearance streak at 27.
