Todd Bowles has accomplished plenty in his life. He spent eight years in the NFL, seven of them in Washington. He has been an NFL coach in some capacity since 2000 when he started as a secondary coach for the Jets. That time also includes four years as head coach of the Jets and he is now entering his second year as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
After 37 years, Bowles can now add one more item to his resume: college graduate. Bowles made a promise to his mother when he began his NFL career in 1986 that he would one day complete his degree.
“Completing my degree was something I had always wanted to do over the years, because it was something I had promised my mother when I went to play in the NFL, and I wanted to follow through on that promise,” Bowles told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times back in September.
That promise came true Saturday and Bowles is now officially part of the Mount St. Mary’s Class of 2023. After returning to school in 2020, Bowles received a degree in youth and community development.
Congrats on graduating, coach!
