    Q & A Re Jeff Bowden Resignation

    Q: Was the resignation forced?

    A: Athletic Director Dave Hart said he was approached by Jeff Bowden on Monday about the decision. The timing of the announcement - with two games left in the regular season - also would indicate it was Jeff's decision. Who knows?

    Q: Have any of Bobby Bowden's other sons worked for him?

    A: Yes,Tommy Bowden was a graduate assistant at FSU, coincidentally while Jeff was a wide reciever with the team.

    Q: How long has Jeff Bowden coached at Florida State?

    A: This is his 13th season at FSU. He has been offensive coordinator since 2001. He was wide-receivers coach from 1994-2000. He also has been an assistant coach at Southern Mississippi and Samford.

    Q: What is Bowden's annual salary?

    A: $141,000.

    Q: When does his contract expire?

    A: August.

    Q: Who will be FSU's next offensive coordinator?

    A: That's up to head coach Bobby Bowden, who reports to Athletic Director Dave Hart. FSU will likely conduct a national search for a replacement. Chris Hatcher,head coach at Valdosta, has said he'd only take a job at a big school if it's a coordinator spot; Brad Scott, who was FSU's offensive coordinator during the Seminoles' first national title in 1993, is an assistant coach at Clemson. Whoever it is needs to have a proven record at being an offesnive coordinator.
