Ex- Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe to interview at UAB
Former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe will reportedly interview for the UAB head coaching vacancy.
The interview is expected to take place Friday in Atlanta, according to an al.com report.
In November, Grobe stepped down as Demon Deacons coach following 13 seasons.
Wake finished the year 4-8, its fifth consecutive losing season, but Grobe was chief architect of the most successful run by Wake Forest football in the ACC era.
The Demon Deacons won the ACC title in 2006, their first since 1970, and his 77 wins at Wake is tied with Peahead Walker for the most victories at the school.
The Blazers are replacing Garrick McGee, who resigned as head coach earlier this month to take the offensive coordinator job at Louisville.
Other candidates for the job include Jacksonville State head coach Bill Clark, Cincinnati offensive coordinator Eddie Gran, Bethune-Cookman head coach Brian Jenkins and Atlanta Falcons tight ends coach Chris Scelfo.
Clark is expected to interview on Friday as well.
