Wake Forest interviewed Bowling Green head coach Dave Clawson on Sunday afternoon as the Demon Deacons continued their search for a replacement for former head coach Jim Grobe, Sports Illustrated reported.
Apparently, Bowling Green’s 47-27 romp over Northern Illinois in the MAC title game on Friday night has made quite an impression with Wake:
Demon Deacons athletic director Ron Wellman attended Bowling Green’s 47-27 blowout win over Northern Illinois in the MAC title game in Detroit on Friday night. The victory gave the school its first MAC football championship since 1992, and it spoiled the Huskies’ BCS bowl chances.
The result also provided some momentum for Clawson’s candidacy, as he led the Falcons to a 10-3 campaign in 2013 and has built a reputation as a meticulous program builder.
At this point, Ball State coach Pete Lembo is considered a co-favorite, along with Lawson, for the job. Lembo interviewed last Thursday.
Wake Forest is expected to announced its decision on Monday.
