FSU's Fisher responds to Bowden news

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher issued the following statement today in response to Bobby Bowden's announcement that he had prostate cancer in 2007:

"It was surprising to me to hear [about Coach’s Bowden’s illness] because I had no knowledge of it, but I am very glad everything turned out all right and Coach Bowden is in great health," Fisher said. "He’s an outstanding man and he’s one of my heroes. I’m very happy for him and very happy they have an outstanding spokesman for that disease."
