Bobby Bowden

(1976-Present) 197-50-4


Current FSU head coach Bobby Bowden begins his 22nd season at the helm of the Seminole
program. By far the winningest coach in school history, Bowden has accumulated more wins
at FSU (197) than the previous seven head coaches combined. His 270 career coaching victories
ranks second only to Penn State’s Joe Paterno among active coaches.



Bowden has taken the Florida State program to the top of the college football world and
topped his list of accomplishments with the 1993 National Championship. Bowden’s Seminoles
have been the most dominant bowl teams ever posting a 15-4-1 record with NCAA records for
winning percentage, consecutive bowl wins (10) and consecutive bowls without a loss (14).



He is the only coach in the history of college football to lead teams to 10 or more wins over
10 straight seasons. He is also the only coach ever to lead his team to 10 straight finishes
among the Associated Press Top Four.
