Former West Virginia University football coach Bobby Bowden has tested positive for COVID-19.

Bowden told ESPN he tested positive for the virus last week but has no symptoms other than feeling tired and he plans to be tested again.

Bowden coached the Mountaineers from 1970-75,  amassing a 46-26 record. He led WVU to the 1972 and 1975 Peach Bowls, losing to NC State in ’72 and defeating the Wolfpack in the second go-around three years later.

Bowden left WVU for Florida State following the 1975 season. He cemented his college football legacy with the Seminoles, going 304-97-4 with 12 conference championships and two national championships in 1993 and 1999. He retired from coaching after the 2009 season.

He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
