Terry Bowden Leading Candidate For West Virginia Football Job

PLEASE OH PLEASE TAKE BROADCASTER CORSO INSTEAD! The free-for-all to find a new West Virginia football coach is on and the CHARLESTON (WV) DAILY MAIL has several candidates in the can - including Terry Bowden.

Terry Bowden

Bowden would appear to be the frontrunner, with the D-M reporting: “The WVU graduate told the Daily Mail in October he wanted to return to coaching next season and that he wanted to replace (Rich) Rodriguez if he had left for Alabama last year.“Bowden has been off the sidelines since 1999, when he was forced to resign at Auburn. The program had been in steady decline since he lead the Tigers to an 11-0 record in ‘93.

The son of FSU coach Bobby Bowden has since been an ABC analyst radio analyst (NEVER trust an official website!) and (what else?) motivational speaker. If WVU is looking to pluck someone from the airwaves, we’re actually rooting for them to take Lee Corso instead.
