Clawson to Bowling Green

Former Tennessee offensive coordinator Dave Clawson, who was in the running for the vacant Yale football job, has been named the head coach at Bowling Green.

Clawson, who played at Williams and had successful head coaching stints at Fordham and Richmond, would have been a nice fit at Yale. Earlier this week I spoke to a couple colleagues at the Knoxville News-Sentinel who had dealings with Clawson at Tennessee and they had nothing but good things to say about the 41-year-old Clawson.

Yale senior linebacker Bobby Abare is a member of the Walter Camp's Football Championship Subdivision All-American team which is being announced today. Abare led Yale with 86 tackles and two defensive touchdowns, tied for the team lead with four interceptions and was second with 12 tackles for losses for a defense which led FCS teams in scoring defense for the second season in a row.

In the final analysis, I believe Clawson was the right guy for the Yale job. I hope they eventually hire someone as capable.
