Called to Coach: Reflections on Life, Faith, and Football by Bobby Bowden, Mark Schlabach

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 footballs most successful coaches and patriarch of the sports most famous coaching family.nbsp;In this book, Bowden will reveal never-before-published details of the moments and events that have defined his life, including:nbsp;* The tragic death of his grandson and son-in-law in a 2006 automobile accident.* Finding the strength to forgive his eldest son, Steve, for swindling $1.4 million from him in a highly publicized ponzi scheme that defrauded investors of more than $10 million.* The difficult decision to fire his son, Jeff, as Florida States offense coordinator, a decision that nearly led him to leave the dynasty he built at FSU.* The gut-wrenching details of his forced retirement as FSUs coach at the end of the 2009 season, which left Bowden sitting in his office in tears and questioning his own mortality.
