Dave Clawson was hired as Wake Forest's head coach exactly one year ago today, so Wake Forest fans are familiar with the coaching carousel that takes place immediately after the college football regular season ends. In a very surprising move, Gary Anderson left Wisconsin for Oregon State, which leaves the Big 10 runner ups without a head coach. Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel tweets that Dave Clawson is a potential candidate for the opening, and that he finished second to Anderson just two years ago.
