Dave Clawson Named Head Football Coach at Wake Forest
The Wake Forest football program has a new head coach and he has ties to the Commonwealth.
Wake officially introduced Dave Clawson as its new head coach Tuesday December 10, 2013.
Clawson led Bowling Green to a 10-3 record this season and a Mid-American Conference Championship.
He was the head coach at Richmond from 2004-2007 and replaces UVa alum Jim Grobe at Wake who resigned after 13 years last week.
Wake's athletic director, Ron Wellman said "we have a winner" in Clawson.
"Certainly in building the program at Richmond, one of the people I stole from was Coach Grobe," said Clawson. "He proved the Wake Forest could win at a high level in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Like Coach Grobe I hope I can make Wake Forest University, the students, and the faculty very proud of Wake Forest football."
