Niagara Gazette — The win over the Huskies earned Bowling Green its third postseason appearance in his five years there, and his record with the Falcons was 32-31.
Clawson called it "gut-wrenching and heart-breaking to leave a group of players that I just fell in love with over the past five years."
He will not coach the Falcons against Pittsburgh in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Bowling Green elevated special teams coordinator and tight ends coach Adam Scheier to interim head coach.
Clawson said he would like to bring all three of his coordinators from Bowling Green to Wake Forest, but asked for patience as he assembled his staff.
