Florida State Won't Ask Bowden To Step Down This Season

It looks like for now, Florida State won’t ask Bobby Bowden to step down as coach this season:

A succession plan for coach-in-waiting Jimbo Fisher to assume greater responsibility before next season has been discussed, though, according to the source.

If Bowden stays for the 2010 season, the source said, Florida State officials want a plan in place in which Fisher would have control over the Seminoles’ football operations — for example, recruiting, coaching and practice.
