Bowden has turned down jobs since Clemson
Former Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden told AL.com that he is enjoying his job as a football analyst but might get back into coaching one day.
If he were to make a return, it would need to be in the near future, he said. "The longer you're out, the more you say no, the less marketable you are. I understand that," he said. "I've discouraged some pretty nice schools that offered million-dollar contracts, but I enjoy what I'm doing. Since I have been out, I have talked to ADs and presidents at SEC, Big 12, Big East and Conference USA (schools), either ADs or board of trustees. Some offered jobs, some didn't. But most of them, I appreciated the interest but I just did not pursue the job."
What would it take to lure him back to coaching?
"It would have to be a job that had the financial resources to hire a quality staff, to be competitive in recruiting and that has the facilities to compete at the highest level," Bowden said. "That's what Clemson had, so you would want something very similar. If that opportunity ever presented itself, I would probably look at that opportunity."
