Called to Coach

Reflections on Life, Faith, and Football

Called to Coach

Foreword by: Tony Dungy and Joe Paterno
Coach Bobby Bowden is an icon of college football who ran his legendary, top-ranking program with a trademark southern charm. With his recent retirement, Bowden is ready to give fans and readers the behind-the-scenes story of his 55-year career and the path that helped him become one of college football's most successful coaches and patriarch of the sport's most famous coaching family. 

In this book, Bowden will reveal never-before-published details of the moments and events that have defined his life, including: 

* The tragic death of his grandson and son-in-law in a 2004 automobile accident.

* The details of his retirement as FSU's coach at the end of the 2009 season.
