RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond hired Fordham's Dave Clawson as its new football coach Monday.

Clawson went 29-29 in five seasons at Fordham, including the 2002 Patriot League title. Clawson also has been an offensive coordinator for Lehigh and Villanova.

He replaces Jim Reid, who left Richmond after nine seasons to become defensive line coach at Syracuse. Richmond went 2-9 last season.
