Coach Bobby Bowden, 79, signed a one-year contract Wednesday, assuring he'll return for his 34th season at Florida State. His deal is worth $2.5 million and he has an option for 2010.
Penn State coach Joe Paterno, 82, recently signed a three-year extension that runs through 2011.
Bowden’s 382 career wins are one fewer than Paterno, the all-time leader among major college coaches.
Who will end up the career wins leader? Will one of these legendary coaches actually have to die on the sideline before he calls it quits? The odds of that are looking more and more likely.
