Babers replaces Dave Clawson.
Bowling Green is coming off a MAC Championship, but coach Dave Clawson left for Wake Forest after the victory over Northern Illinois. The Falcons have picked Clawson’s replacement, choosing Eastern Illinois’ coach Dino Babers to take the top spot at Bowling Green next year.
Babers is considered a rising star in the coaching ranks and has a wealth of experience on his resume.
Babers started his coaching career at Hawaii in 1984 and worked at a handful of programs, including Purdue, San Diego State, Arizona, Texas A&M, Pittsburgh, UCLA and Baylor.
Babers has spent the last two years at Eastern Illinois, recording a 19-7 mark in the process.
With a good chunk of their roster returning in 2014, the Falcons should be picked near the top of the MAC East.
