Former Florida State Coach Bowden Reveals He Had Cancer In 2007
Bobby Bowden spent one of the last years of his coaching career facing something scarier than anything Miami or Florida ever put in his way, but didn't reveal until Tuesday morning he was battling prostate cancer. Bowden's doctors say he is healthy now, but the former Florida State football head coach says he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2007, and had a biopsy later in the year. Bowden says he never revealed the secret to anyone except his wife and doctors, for fear opposing coaches would use Bowden's age and cancer to negatively recruit against him.
Bowden is revealing this news now as a way to help during prostate cancer awareness month. The two-time national champion encourages ever man aged 40-and-older to get his prostate checked on an annual basis.
