Florida State coach Bobby Bowden will announce his retirement on Tuesday morning barring a last minute change of heart, a school official told CBSSports.com.
Both Bowden and the school wanted to officially remain tight lipped on Monday night out of respect for Bowden.
But it's expected that unless Bowden decides at the last minute to stay (which is possible but highly unlikely) his retirement will be announced on Tuesday. The announcement will come as some sort of statement from the school.
Bowden, a source said, has reluctantly come to the realization that it's time to move on.
Bowden won two national titles but this past season lost six games for the third time in four seasons.
