It started on Thursday night.
What will be a month full of lasts for the legendary head coach began at 7 p.m. with the very last Bobby Bowden Show.
Sitting alongside play-by-play announcer Gene Deckerhoff for the final time, Bowden made his first public comments since announcing his retirement on Tuesday afternoon.
“I was kind of hoping to get another year,” Bowden said to begin the show. “It was going to be either this year or next year. That was as far as I was going to go.”
