Bowling Green Names Adam Scheier Interim Coach

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

BGSU formally announced this morning the departure of Dave Clawson to Wake Forest. Scheier, an assistant coach for Clawson, has been named interim coach for the team's bowl game against Pittsburgh.

The Bowling Green Falcons announced this morning that assistant coach Adam Scheier will be the team's interim head coach for the upcoming Little Caesars Pizza Bowl against the Pittsburgh Panthers.  This announcement takes place less than 12 hours after news broke that now-former head coach Dave Clawson had accepted an offer to become the new head coach at Wake Forest.

Scheier came to Bowling Green with Clawson in 2009 and has served as the Falcons' special teams coordinator and tight ends coach for the last five seasons.  During those five seasons, his position players have earned all-conference honors on nine different occasions. His special teams units have combined for eight touchdown returns and 15 blocked kicks, including the infamous Paul Senn block-and-return earlier this season against Indiana.

Prior to his time at Bowling Green, Scheier coached special teams at Lehigh for seven years.  He was also wide receivers coach there for four seasons.  Before Lehigh, he spent two seasons at Princeton, where he was also special teams and wide receivers coach.  Scheier began his career with stops at Dartmouth and Columbia.  He was also a four-year letter-winner at safety for Dartmouth.

No announcement was made regarding the status of Bowling Green's other assistant coaches.  Athletics director Chris Kingston said that a national search for a new full-time head coach will begin immediately, but there is no timetable for the completion of that search.
