Watch: Legendary Florida State Coach Bobby Bowden Joins Trump

Republican nominee Donald Trump has gained the support of yet another legendary college sports figure.  

Bobby Bowden, coach of the  Florida State Seminoles football team from the 1976 to 2009, is a two-time national champion and 12-time ACC champion.

 "I love his slogan ... I love what he said about making America great again," said Bowden, who rallied supporters in Tampa, Florida. Bowden said his wife had already voted for Trump and that his daughters will, too.

Bowden is not the only legend in college sports to have endorsed Trump. Coach Bobby Knight of the Indiana Hoosiers basketball program endorsed the candidate just days before the Indiana primary, a move in which many said influenced the election results.  Two weeks before hand, Ted Cruz led Donald Trump by 16 points in the state.
