Bobby Bowden retired from Florida State after the 2009 season. His final game was a win in the Gator Bowl.

TALLAHASSEE, Florida (AP) - Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden says the NCAA's unprecedented punishment of Penn State's football program "cannot replace those boys who were molested."

Among the penalties was the vacating of 112 wins by Penn State, 111 of which were credited to coach Joe Paterno. The move retroactively makes Bowden the NCAA career leader among major-college coaches, 377 wins.

Bowden, who himself has been forced to vacate wins, says he "didn't want it to happen like this. Wish I could have earned it, but that's the way it is. I don't want people thinking I am glad that happened so I can do this. All of the things that have happened aren't worth it - not worth it at all."
