Clawson signs contract extension with Wake Forest

( – Former Wake Forest football coach Dave Clawson has signed a contract extension with the school, that keeps him on the sidelines through 2024.

Clawson led the Demon Deacons to a 10-3 season in 2015. Wake Forest defeated North Carolina State in the Independence Bowl for its first postseason victory since 2011.

“Dave has established himself as one of the nation’s top coaching talent,” Wake Forest University athletics director Ron Wellman said. “His tireless work ethic, coaching expertise and personal integrity have earned him tremendous respect. His impact on our football program has been life-changing for our players and our student-athletes will never be the same.”

Clawson’s career record is 60-44 in seven seasons with the Demon Deacons. He was 18-21 with the Demon Deacons from 2012-14 before leaving for Illinois State.

“The direction of our program is in good hands with Ron Wellman, Danny White and the Wake Forest administration,” Clawson said. “I’m grateful to be a part of the Wake Forest community, the University, the community and the team.”
