          === Report: Wake Forest to hire Bowling Green's Clawson ===
 (SportsNetwork.com)  - Bowling  Green  head football  coach  Dave Clawson  has
 agreed  to take  the  same position  at Wake  Forest,  multiple media  outlets
 reported on Monday.
 According  to  SportsIllustrated.com,  Clawson  was chosen  over  another  Mid
 American  Conference coach,  Ball State's  Pete Lembo,  to become  Jim Grobe's
 successor  at  Wake  Forest.  Grobe  resigned  last  week  after  a  generally
 accomplished  13-year  run with the  Demon Deacons, though the program endured
 its fifth straight losing campaign by going 4-8 in 2013.
 Clawson  has guided Bowling  Green to a 10-3 record as well as this year's MAC
 championship,  with  the Falcons  knocking  off  previously unbeaten  Northern
 Illinois in Friday's title game to earn their first league crown since 1992.
 Bowling  Green has eclipsed its victory total in each of the last four seasons
 under Clawson, going 8-5 and receiving a bid to the Military Bowl in 2012. The
 Falcons  will participate in the Little Caesar's Bowl on Dec. 26, squaring off
 against  Pittsburgh in a return trip to Detroit's Ford Field, the site of last
 week's MAC Championship.
 Clawson  has compiled  a 32-31 overall mark over five seasons at Bowling Green
 and  previously put together successful stints as a head coach at both Fordham
 and  Richmond,  having led  both of  those FCS  schools to playoff appearances
 during his tenures there.
