Wake Forest University head football coach Dave Clawson announced on Monday that Kevin Higgins, the head coach at The Citadel, will be joining the Demon Deacon coaching staff.

Higgins will serve as the assistant head coach and will coach a yet to be determined position on offense.

“I am extremely excited that Kevin Higgins has accepted our offer to join our football staff at Wake Forest,” said Clawson. “Kevin has wealth of football knowledge gained as a head coach and also through his experience in the NFL as a quarterbacks and wide receivers coach. He will be a great addition to our staff.”

Higgins compiled a 99-83-1 record in 16 years as a head coach. He was the head coach for seven seasons at Lehigh from 1994-2000, leading the Mountain Hawks to 56-25-1 record and three appearances in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.

    Higgins is following a similar path to the one Clawson took when he left a head coaching gig at Richmond (also FCS) to become an assistant at a BCS school (Tennessee). So far, it seems to have worked out for Clawson.

    Sure, it’s working out well for Dave Clawson now. But the move to Tennessee in and of itself didn’t turn out well at all.
