Tommy Bowden          

Former Head Coach of Clemson Tigers

Tommy Pearce Bowden was the head coach at Clemson University from 1999 until October 13, 2008.

Before coming to Clemson, Bowden was the head coach at Tulane University, and an assistant at the University of Alabama, Auburn University, Duke University, the University of Kentucky, East Carolina University and, with his father, at Florida State. His 1998 Tulane squad went 12–0 and achieved a top-10 final ranking in both polls.

Bowden was hired as Clemson's head coach before the 1999 season. Bowden's Clemson teams went to a bowl game every year he coached there, except in 2004. He resigned on October 13, 2008, after leading the team to a disappointing 3–3 record (1–2 ACC) at the midpoint of a season in which the Tigers had been an almost unanimous preseason pick to win their first ACC title under Bowden and were ranked #9 in the preseason polls.

After resigning, Bowden has frequently appeared as an expert college football analyst on ESPN television and radio and currently is the co-host of two football television shows, one with FOX Sports and one with the ACC Football Network.
