Report: Wake Forest to hire Bowling Green's Clawson

(SportsNetwork.com) - Bowling Green head football coach Dave Clawson has agreed to take the same position at Wake Forest, multiple media outlets reported on Monday.

According to SportsIllustrated.com, Clawson was chosen over another Mid American Conference coach, Ball State's Pete Lembo, to become Jim Grobe's successor at Wake Forest. Grobe resigned last week after a generally accomplished 13-year run with the Demon Deacons, though the program endured its fifth straight losing campaign by going 4-8 in 2013.

Clawson has guided Bowling Green to a 10-3 record as well as this year's MAC championship, with the Falcons knocking off previously unbeaten Northern Illinois in Friday's title game to earn their first league crown since 1992.

Bowling Green has eclipsed its victory total in each of the last four seasons under Clawson, going 8-5 and receiving a bid to the Military Bowl in 2012. The Falcons will participate in the Little Caesar's Bowl on Dec. 26, squaring off against Pittsburgh in a return trip to Detroit's Ford Field, the site of last week's MAC Championship.

Clawson has compiled a 32-31 overall mark over five seasons at Bowling Green and previously put together successful stints as a head coach at both Fordham and Richmond, having led both of those FCS schools to playoff appearances during his tenures there.
