ABC Sports Analyst Terry Bowden to Speak at Lyceum


Terry Bowden

ABC sports analyst Terry Bowden obviously has a lot of expertise about football and sports in general. But he also has many insights to offer in the area of human potential. He’ll share a little about both of these topics on Thursday, May 27 at 7:30 p.m., when he presents “You Can Make a Difference” at Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic.

Bowden’s talk is part of the college’s annual Lyceum. For information about other Lyceum programs and activities, please visit the Lyceum section of our web site.

Bowden has been successful as a student, an athlete and a college football coach and is a much sought-after motivational speaker. The qualities that have made him successful throughout his life – enthusiasm, contagious optimism, confidence, humor and work ethic – are the same qualities that he now relies on as a network television studio analyst for college football.

As a college football coach, Bowden was enormously successful, compiling a 15-year record of 111-53-2 and an impressive winning percentage of 68 percent. As head coach of the Auburn Tigers, he won 73 percent of his games and posted the best opening five-year run of any head football coach in school history. In 1993, he accomplished a feat that no other Division I-A coach had ever accomplished. He had gone undefeated and untied in his first year as a Division I-A head coach at Auburn University, a perfect 11-0.

Bowden was born into the most famous and successful college football family. His father, Bobby Bowden, turned Florida State into a national champion, his brother Tommy is head coach at Clemson, brother Jeff is the offensive coordinator at Florida State and brother-in-law Jack Hines is an assistant coach for the Clemson Tigers.

In 1998, Bowden left his stellar coaching career behind and made the exciting move into broadcasting with ABC Sports. He made the same dramatic entrance into the broadcasting industry as he did as a head coach in college football. He has quickly become one of the top studio analysts in college football on ABC Sports. His energy and insight captivate viewers all over the country.
