Per the report, Bowden, 90, received the positive test as he battled an infection that stemmed from surgery on his leg.

Bowden joined the Seminoles’ program in 1976 and remained as the team’s coach through the 2009 season. He posted a 315-98-4 record with Florida State and guided the school to two national titles (1993, 1999) and 12 ACC championships (1992-2000, 2002-03, 2005).

Bowden was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006.

Current Seminoles coach Mike Norvell tested positive for COVID-19 last month and missed the team’s loss to the Miami Hurricanes.
