On Friday night, Bowling Green head coach Dave Clawson guided his team to a win over nationally-ranked Northern Illinois in the MAC Championship game.

There was speculation during the game that Clawson was interested in the Wake Forest head football coaching job. The Demon Deacons job became available when long-time head football coach Jim Grobe resigned from the position after 13-years.

Now, Wake Forest could be close to hiring Clawson as their next head coach. According to CBS Sports’ Bruce Feldman, the Demon Deacons have offered Clawson the job.

Clawson interviewed with Wake Forest officials on Sunday. And Demon Deacons athletic director Ron Wellman attended the Bowling Green’s 47-27 win over the Huskies in the MAC Championship game last Friday.

This season, the Falcons were 10-3 under Clawson’s guidance. Besides Clawson for the job, current Ball State head coach Pete Lembo was also a finalist for the job.

Clawson has been the Falcons head coach since the 2009 season. At Bowling Green, he presently holds a 32-31 record.

He has also served as the Fordham head football coach from 1999 through 2003. And was the Richmond head football coach from 2004 through 2007.

Should he accept the Wake Forest job, one of his assistant coaches will coach in the Little Caesars Bowl game the day after Christmas. The Falcons have made it to two Bowl games under Clawson; however, they lost the Humanitarian Bowl in 2009 and the Military Bowl game in 2012.
