Coley departure doesn't affect Bower

Two weekends ago, Tashawn Bower (Somerville, N.J./Immaculata) was on campus visiting Florida State and assistant coach James Coley.

Fast forward to Thursday, and Coley is no longer a member of the Seminoles coaching staff. He's Miami's new offensive coordinator.

The ESPN 150 defensive end was clear and concise when asked whether the Seminoles would be eliminated from his list because of the coaching turnover.

"Nope," Bower said. "No impact really."

Bower, an Auburn commitment, is closely considering Florida, Florida State and LSU. He visited the Gators last weekend and is scheduled to visit LSU this weekend.
