Bowling Green’s Dave Clawson will be announced Tuesday as Wake Forest’s new head coach.
Wake athletic director Ron Wellman, a Bowling Green alum, was in attendance for the MAC Championship Game. Clawson interviewed with Wake Forest officials on Sunday and was offered the position the following day.
The job came down to Clawson and Ball State’s Pete Lembo, who met with Wellman in Muncie, Ind. on Thursday.
Before arriving at Bowling Green, Clawson was the head coach at Fordham, Richmond and offensive coordinator at Tennessee for one season (2008). Clawson has a 32-31 record with the Falcons, with two previous bowl appearances (2009, 2012) and 18 wins in the last two seasons.
Clawson replaces Jim Grobe, who resigned Dec. 2 after 13 seasons.
