Tennessee offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian could be an option for Bowling Green in its search for a new head coach, according to a report by CoachingSearch.com.
Bajakian, 39, has served as coordinator for Butch Jones during all seven of his years as head coach, including stops at Central Michigan and Cincinnati.
Bowling Green is searching for a replacement for Dave Clawson, who was hired as new head coach at Wake Forest.
Like Bajakian, Clawson is an alumnus of Williams College. He served as offensive coordinator for Tennessee in 2008 before being hired as head coach at Bowling Green.
Bowling Green had not contacted Tennessee for permission to speak to Bajakian as of Tuesday. Other candidates for the Falcons could include Florida defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin and Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell.
Durkin is a former Bowling Green player. He was a graduate assistant on Urban Meyer’s Bowling Green staff in 2000-2001. Tennessee assistants Tommy Thigpen and Zach Azzanni also coached on that team.
