BOWLING GREEN, Ohio — Adam Scheier will be the interim coach at Bowling Green after Dave Clawson left to take over at Wake Forest.

Bowling Green State University athletic director D. Christopher Kingston announced the move on Tuesday. Scheier will lead the Falcons against Pittsburgh in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl on Dec. 26.

Scheier is in his fifth season at Bowling Green, previously serving as special teams coordinator while overseeing tight ends. Scheier’s special teams units have been among the best in the Mid-American Conference — blocking 16 kicks while returning three kicks and four punts for touchdowns — during his tenure.

Kingston says the search for the next coach is underway.
