Chuck Amato said he didn't talk about his cancer sooner because he wanted the focus to be on longtime friend Bobby Bowden's final season.

Chuck Amato said he didn't talk about his cancer sooner because he wanted the focus to be on longtime friend Bobby Bowden's final season.

Bobby Bowden tells The Associated Press he was
"pushed out" after 34 years as Florida State coach and that his
relationship with former university president T.K. Wetherell is
likely beyond repair.

Bowden coached for 34 years at Florida State and says he had
always had a good relationship with Wetherell.

But Bowden also said in an interview with the AP on Tuesday that
Wetherell offered him the option of returning for one more season
as "ambassador coach," giving control of the program to successor
Jimbo Fisher.

Bowden declined and instead retired.
Bowden says now he doesn't want Florida State to "spread the
story that I voluntarily, happily resigned."

He said of Wetherell: "I doubt I'll have a relationship with
T.K. anymore."
