The Bobby Bowden book tour journeyed back to Tallahassee Friday night and the fanfare shows the living legend is still beloved by Seminole Nation.

Former longtime FSU coach Bobby Bowden reacts during an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday.

After 34 seasons on the FSU sidelines, team meetings and football sidelines have now been replaced by speaking engagements and book signings. Former FSU head football coach Bobby Bowden hasn't stopped moving since retiring last January.

The College Football Hall of Famer spent Thursday in Panama City, FL at a book signing. He followed that up Friday with a visit to Governor Square Mall in Tallahassee.

Fans lined up at Garnet & Gold eager to see Bowden, take pictures and get his autograph.

When asked how much fun he's had writing and promoting the book "Called to Coach", Bowden replied:

I've been coaching for 57 years... I might as well tell somebody about it."

Bowden will be busy this College Bowl Season... He's set to be inducted into the Gator Bowl Hall of Fame on December 31st in Jacksonville, FL.

Then on January 3rd, he's an honorary captain for the Discover Card Orange Bowl down in Miami, FL.
