Ex-Auburn coach Terry Bowden hired to lead Louisiana-Monroe

MONROE, La. (AP) — Former Auburn coach Terry Bowden has been hired by Louisiana-Monroe to rebuild a football program that went 0-10 this season. Bowden is the son of former Florida State coaching great Bobby Bowden and has been serving as a graduate assistant at Clemson the last two years. He had a successful stint as Auburn’s head coach from 1993-98 that came to a tumultuous end with a midseason firing. He had a long run in broadcasting as a television and radio analyst before getting back into coaching in 2009 with Division II North Alabama. He returned to Division I with Akron, leading the Zips from 2012-18 and going 35-52 with two bowl appearances.

Former Louisiana Gov. Mike Foster had died at the age of 90
