'You almost feel guilty we're not on the front lines': Wake Forest's Dave Clawson volunteers pay cut

Wake Forest Football Coach Dave Clawson volunteered to take a pay cut while we battle the coronavirus pandemic. He explains why.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Wake Forest Head Football Coach Dave Clawson volunteered to take a 10% pay cut while we battle the coronavirus pandemic. 

The school announced his decision on Tuesday. 

"It's a very small sacrifice to help our university and help our athletic department," said Clawson. "Catherine and I just wanted to feel like we were doing our part. I think there are times when this is going on, you almost feel guilty that we're not on the front lines, we're not making the scarifies health care workers are."
