Bobby Bowden, Howard Schnellenberger May Coach ‘Battle of Florida’ All-Star Game
Bobby Bowden has not coached since being let go by Florida State in January, 2010 and Howard Schnellenberger announced this will be his last season as head coach at Florida Atlantic. Even though both men will be out of coaching as of January, it looks like they may oppose each other in a collegiate all-star game.
Owl Access says a “Battle of Florida” game is being planned for January 21st, 2012 at FAU’s stadium. They say Bowden has agreed to coach the north Florida team while Schnellenberger is expected to coach the south Florida team.
What adds intrigue to the matchup is that Schnellenberger coached Miami from 1979-1983 and laid the foundation for the powerhouse it became. Schnellenberger was 3-2 head-to-head vs. Bowden in the five years the schools met. Best part about this planned game is that it reportedly may be televised nationally. Count me in.
