When you have the family pedigree of Terry Bowden, who is the son of Hall of Fame coach Bobby Bowden and the younger brother of former Clemson coach Tommy Bowden, you don’t stay unemployed for long.
Which is why the former Auburn and Akron coach will be working under his brother Tommy’s successor at Clemson Dabo Swinney.Terry will assist Clemson's football staff as an unpaid intern while he pursues a graduate degree at the school.
Not bad for a 63-year-old who is enrolled in a graduate program for athletic leadership at Clemson. Bowden spent the past seven seasons coaching Akron, where he went 35-52 before being fired in December.There is no timetable on how long Bowden will assist the Tigers football program.
But looks like he’ll be learning both in and out of the classroom while he is there.
- Bowden has led teams at Akron, Auburn, FCS Samford, Division II Salem College and Division II North Alabama. He went 47-17-1 at Auburn, including an 11-0 season in 1993
