Dadgummit! Bobby's Retired
FSU coach Bowden coached his last game today at the Gator Bowl. At the post game newschat he said at age 80 he was looking forward to retirement, sorta. He made mention that he was "land poor" indicating that he owned a lot of land that no one wanted to buy today.
He also mentioned his 3 million dollar annual pay that would be going away. Said that only about $300K was paid by the school, the rest was from Nike, speaking engagements, TV show and radio show. Will move to his beach house in Panama City but will keep the place in Tallahassee.
No doubt he must have a pretty nice pension due him from FSU as he coached there for 58 years.
Also, I assume that he has been pulling down the SS max for about 10 years.
He can probably make it with a bit of PT w*rk and a well managed bank account.
