I can’t find this anywhere online, but the FOX affiliate here in Nashville reported tonight that the University of Alabama interviewed Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden for its vacant hc office.
Well, if you can’t get daddy.
Of course most Alabama fans know that Bobby Bowden wanted the job years ago but didn’t get it. Now, he’s going to finish his career at Florida State. Terry Bowden won his first 21 games as Auburn’s head coach but then tanked before resigning (got fired) in mid-season and now works part-time with ABC. Tommy was the wide receiver’s coach at Auburn and a darned good one at that. I remember he coached the receivers to drag their back foot when making a catch near the sidelines. It helped win two games against Florida during the unbeaten streak.
Folks back then were saying that Tommy was the better coach of the Bowden boys but he hasn’t done a whole lot at Clemson and nearly lost his job there a couple of years ago. This will probably hit the Alabama papers tomorrow. Saban, according some reports, is still in the picture despite his denial, but if that were really the case, I wonder if bama would be interviewing Bowden.
