WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Dave Clawson will be named Wake Forest’s head football coach Tuesday.
Clawson, the head coach at Bowling Green, will succeed Jim Grobe, according to a person familiar with the search who asked not to be identified.
Wake Forest chose Clawson over Pete Lembo of Ball State, the other finalist.
A media conference will be held to introduce Clawson on Tuesday, after which he plans to begin recruiting for Wake Forest.
Clawson, 46, is a native of Youngstown, N.Y., who has compiled a 90-80 record at Fordham, Richmond and Bowling Green. The Falcons are 10-3 this season and will play Pittsburgh in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl in Detroit on Dec. 26.
