Wake Forest Hires Bowling Green's Clawson

Wake Forest has announced that Bowling Green's Dave Clawson has agreed to become the Demon Deacons' next football coach.

In formally announcing the hiring, athletic director Ron Wellman on Tuesday said in a release that Clawson is "a proven winner" who "has developed a national reputation as a builder of programs."

Clawson will be introduced during a news conference later Tuesday in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Clawson led Bowling Green (10-3) to an upset of previously unbeaten and then-No. 16 Northern Illinois in the Mid-American Conference championship game last week.

He will not coach the Falcons against Pittsburgh in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Bowling Green elevated special teams coordinator and tight ends coach Adam Scheier to interim head coach.
