BOWDEN STAYING OR GOING?

Based on the latest twist in the Mickie Andrews story, we vote “Staying whether you like it or not” or “Go ahead, fire me, I dare you.”

Florida State coach Bobby Bowden said Wednesday that he will "make the final decision" on the Seminoles' next defensive coordinator, but added that head coach-in-waiting Jimbo Fisher should weigh in heavily.

"I think he definitely has to have a say-so, because he's the future here," Bowden said of Fisher, during the weekly ACC teleconference. "It's one of those things I'll make the final decision on, but I'll definitely get his input, and very strongly."

On Tuesday, current defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews announced his pending retirement. Andrews, who is in his 26th season with the Seminoles and 47th in coaching, will remain on staff through Feb. 10, 2010.

It is unclear, though, whether Bowden will return to Florida State to coach the 2010 season. The university will owe Fisher $5 million if he is not named head coach by January 2011.
