That's a big "Wow".  

Good for the Zips.  They have such a nice stadium and facilities, but such a horrible team.   At least he'll bring some excitement to the football program.
The State University of New York. 

Blue. White. Damn Right.

The position is so curious. 2 others turned down offers before Bowden calls them to put his name in. He's been calling FBS schools with openings in recent years but has gotten no traction for even an interview. There were whispers of him dancing with WVU after RichRod bolted but it went nowhere, even with his family connections to the school. He may be as much an FBS-coaching reclamation project as the team-reclamation project he's stepping into. I've heard Brian Wagner graduated and was looking to transfer for his last year, but I wonder if this hire changes that potentially big loss
