FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) -- Terry Bowden, who posted a perfect season
in his first year at Auburn but resigned five years later after a 1-5 start, has been named head coach at Division II North Alabama, the school announced Wednesday night.
The 52-year-old Bowden, son of Florida State coach Bobby Bowden,
brings a 111-53-2 record to North Alabama, which finished the 2008
season 12-2 and reached the semifinals of the Division II playoffs.
Bowden replaces Mark Hudspeth, who left to become an assistant coach at Mississippi State. Bowden, who won his first 20 games at Auburn in 1993-94, has been working as an analyst on Westwood One's college game of the week.
