Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden was secretly treated for prostate cancer in 2007 and has been in remission for four-plus years. He kept his condition a secret to keep the attention away from his team. Bowden said...

"I didn't say anything because of coaching,"..."In recruiting, if people find out you have some kind of problem, they're going to magnify it. If you have cancer, they're going to make it sound like you're dying. It would have been all over the country."..."I never made a big deal out of telling the [FSU] president or athletics director."
He has come out about his condition now to help raise awareness about prostate cancer. September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
