From CoachingSearch.com:

Bowden said, "I always thought to be successful in coaching if I could get my teams to understand five things, I can win some games. Five foundations of character."


"Commitment, accountability, responsibility, discipline, sacrifice. If I can get my teams to understand those five things, I can win some games. It spells CARDS."

"11.5 years as a head coach, 90 wins, conference coach of the year 3 times, national coach of the year finalist twice, went undefeated, never had a losing season, bowl eligible every year...trying to force those basic fundamentals of character to my team."

"I really think if you're going to be successful in life, whether it be marriage, business, social life, choosing friends, if you can implement those things (CARDS) in your life, you'll be successful."
