Coming off a season that exceeded preseason expectations, Dave Clawson has been given a contractual pat on the back by Bowling Green.
In a press release, the school announced that it has reached an agreement on a contract extension with Clawson. The head coach is now signed through the 2018 season.
There was no mention of any type of bump in pay for Clawson, who earned just over $364,000 in 2012.
“I appreciate the confidence shown in me and our football staff by president Dr. Mary Ellen Mazey and our athletics director, Greg Christopher,” said Clawson. “Both Dr. Mazey and Greg have been extremely supportive in my time here and they have made it clear the University has made a commitment to the future of BGSU football. We have built a solid foundation over the past four years, and I look forward to continuing to build and grow our program.”
Clawson, who spent the season prior to coming to BGSU as Tennessee’s offensive coordinator, has gone 22-28 in his four seasons with the Falcons. BGSU is coming off an 8-5 season that included a second-place finish in the MAC East.
The Falcons have qualified for two bowl games with Clawson at the helm.
“Dave has done a terrific job of rebuilding our football program,” said Christopher. “We now have a solid foundation for continued success. Dave has not only instilled a winning culture, but he runs a first-rate program that represents the entire University in a positive fashion. This extension is about our commitment to Dave, the coaching staff and the entire football program.”
