Bobby Bowden, former legendary head coach of Florida State Seminoles football, is back in the hospital due to COVID-19, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

He tested positive for the disease last Saturday.

Now, he was transported by ambulance to Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare (TMH) Tuesday afternoon, according to the Tallahassee Democrat. Bowden turns 91 next month.

Bowden's wife Ann told the Democrat that her husband was readmitted Tuesday as a precautionary measure due to fatigue, according to the Tallahassee Democrat. She said Bowden was scheduled to undergo a chest X-ray and other tests.

"I feel sure he's going to be OK," Ann said. "I am very positive. I am not an alarmist. He hasn't been getting around much at all due to his leg; it has been pretty painful. He sleeps much of the day."

Bowden had already been hospitalized at TMH for almost two weeks with a leg infection after the removal of cancer spots, the Tallahassee Democrat reported. He was transferred to the hospital's rehab center and was released last Thursday.
