COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Citadel's Kevin Higgins is leaving to become assistant head coach at Wake Forest under new Demon Deacons football coach Dave Clawson.

Wake Forest announced Higgins hiring Monday. Higgins will also coach a position on offense, although his role has not yet been determined, the school said in a release.

Higgins was head coach at Lehigh where Clawson served as his offensive coordinator in 1994-95.

Higgins spent the past nine seasons with the Bulldogs of the Southern Conference. He had two winnings seasons, going 7-4 in 2007 and 2012. Higgins had an overall record of 43-58 at Citadel, which competed in the Football Championship Subdivision.

Higgins is 99-83-1 overall as 16 years as head coach.

Clawson says Higgins has a wealth of football knowledge he's happy to have join him.
