Wake Forest moved quickly in replacing Jim Grobe, choosing Bowling Green’s Dave Clawson to be its next head coach.
Grobe tied the school record with 77 victories during his Wake Forest tenure, which included an 11-3 record with an ACC Championship in 2006.
Clawson is a good hire for Wake Forest, as he has a 90-80 career record in three head coaching stops. Clawson went 29-29 in five years at Fordham, 29-20 in four years at Richmond and 32-31 in five seasons at Bowling Green.
Wake Forest isn’t an easy job, but Clawson already has experience winning at difficult programs, and his rebuilding effort at Bowling Green should serve him well in Winston-Salem.

Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe has decided to resign, ending a successful 13-year tenure in Winston-Salem.
Grobe’s final record with the Demon Deacons is 77-82. During his 13 years in Winston-Salem, Grobe led Wake Forest to one conference championship and five bowl appearances.
Grobe is tied for the most wins in Wake Forest school history.
Wake Forest is one of the toughest BCS jobs in the nation, but there should be quality candidates interested in this position.
One name to keep in mind is Ball State coach Pete Lembo. The former Elon coach is 25-12 in three seasons with Ball State.

Wake Forest’s offense suffered a huge setback in Saturday’s loss to Syracuse, as receiver Michael Campanaro suffered a dislocated collarbone in the first half. Campanaro is the Demon Deacons’ top offensive performer and one of the top receivers in the ACC.
Campanaro is out indefinitely, which puts a damper on Wake Forest’s hopes to get bowl eligible.
Conclusion to take from Wake-Cuse: The Demon Deacons are not going to like life without Michael Campanaro. Not one bit.— Patrick Stevens (@D1scourse) November 2, 2013

The ACC has only two top-25 teams in Athlon’s projected final 125 rankings, but the conference should make a run at having 10 teams make a postseason appearance.
It’s not the biggest indicator when predicting success, but returning starters are an interesting trend to look at before the season starts.
And it’s interesting to note that four teams in the Coastal Division have 13 returning starters, while Georgia Tech – the division’s ACC title representative last year – has a conference-best 16 starters back for 2013.
