Florida State's Bowden wants to coach another year

Football coach Bobby Bowden plans to meet with Florida State president T.K. Wetherell later in the week to discuss his future at the school.

Bowden said yesterday that he wants to coach another year, which would be his 35th in Tallahassee.

"I've got bosses," said the 80-year-old Bowden, who has 388 career wins. "I've got people who would have to approve it."
