New head football coach for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons Dave Clawson visited The David Glenn Show on Thursday to talk about his recent transition to the ACC school and where his staff and team stands with the nearing season opener against Louisiana-Monroe.

Clawson, a championship-winning head coach at Fordham, Richmond and Bowling Green, has a steep hill to climb to get the Deacons from fifth in the Atlantic Division to competing for an ACC title.

“There is a formula to win everywhere,” Clawson said. “And what that formula is differs from school to school.”

Clawson later said in the interview, “the key to winning at Wake Forest is recruiting high-character guys who love football, retaining those players, and then we’ve got to develop them.”

Clawson also talked of his quickly assembled staff and how his familiarity with those coaches and ability to effectively communicate with them will translate to on-field success.
