Video Rewind: Bobby Bowden's Return to Doak


Bobby Bowden returned to Doak Campbell Stadium for the first time since retiring this past Saturday. If you missed it, here's a video (courtesy of TheACC.com) of FBS's all-time winningest coach dropping the spear before the Seminoles beat the Wolfpack 49-17.

You may also notice the moment at the end when Jimbo Fisher and Bowden embrace. After the game Fisher was asked about the moment.

"I love the guy. I just wanted to pay my respects," said Fisher. "He’s the greatest football coach in college football history in my opinion and the greatest gentleman for sure.”

Added Florida State Hall of Famer Willie Jones Sr.: "It means a lot to me just to have him to bring him back to recognize him for the great things he’s done not only for the university, but for the higher education environment everywhere. 

"Sometimes we wait to say how much we love a person until after they’re dead. But we get to enjoy this now."
