Bowden confirmed that he had tested positive to multiple media outlets in Tallahassee, saying he was tested while at the hospital last week.
According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Bowden had been hospitalized with a leg infection after getting cancer spots removed.
Despite testing positive for the virus, the 90-year-old former coach of the Seminoles says he is not experiencing any symptoms.
He told the newspaper that he is the only one in his household that tested positive, but said he and his wife, daughter and grandson will be tested again Monday.
Bowden will celebrate his 91st birthday next month.
