From 2012 to 2015, Bowling Green went 36-19 under two men -- Dave Clawson and Dino Babers -- who had previous head-coaching experience. I'd expect the school to seek the same in its next coach. Some potential candidates who fit the profile: Notre Dame special teams coordinator Brian Polian, Mount Union coach Vince Kehres, Ohio State co-offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson, James Madison coach Mike Houston and Fresno State offensive coordinator Kalen DeBoer. Others without HC experience include Notre Dame assistants Mike Elston and Clark Lea, and Northwestern assistant Matt MacPherson.
