The search for ULM’s new football coach didn’t last long. The university at Matt Viator parted ways after five seasons, earlier this month.
Now, the Warhawks introduce a name that could register as a big splash: Terry Bowden.
He’s the same person who led Auburn from 1993-98. Bowden is the recipient of the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award.
For the last two seasons, Terry Bowden, served as a graduate assistant for Clemson’s football program, while pursuing a masters degree at the school. Before calling South Carolina home, he was based in Akron. The 64-year old was the Zips’ head coach from 2011-18.
Does the last name ‘Bowden’ ring a bell? It should. From 1976-2009, Bobby Bowden was the face of Florida State – and collegiate football. During his time in Tallahassee, he won a pair of National Championships, 12 Atlantic Coast Conference titles. He’s recorded the fourth best win-loss record in collegiate football history. Two spots ahead of him? Grambling legend Eddie Robinson.
Terry Bowden hopes to turn Monroe into “Titletown” – and at the same time continue to build his own legacy.
