DEVELOPING: Grobe Stepping Down at Wake

((HT: WGHP))

Greensboro TV station WGHP and the Winston-Salem Journal are reporting that Jim Grobe is stepping down after 13 seasons at Wake can watch the press conference live HERE.

OSG sources are saying the resignation is to save face and not get fired...

Grobe ended his 13th season at Wake with a 23-21 loss at Vanderbilt. The Deacons wrapped 2013 4-8 for their fifth-straight losing season.

Grobe still remains tied with Peahead Walker for the most victories at Wake Forest by a football coach with 77.

The glory time for Wake Forest football was back in 2006 when Grobe coached Wake Forest to its first ACC title since 1970 and second ever title.

The Deacons beat Georgia Tech 9-6 in a less-than-enthralling conference championship in Jacksonville in front of a television audience of a little more than friends and family...

They went on to lose to Louisville 24-13 in the Orange Bowl. Grobe was named national coach of the year by several organizations after that effort...

More when we know more... a presser is scheduled for 4:15 on campus...

J-DUB UPDATE: 3:45pm - Jim Grobe just told his players that he is officially stepping down. Demon Deacon star receiver Michael Campanaro just tweeted, "WOW. Coach Grobe steppin down! :("

Here's how it was covered early on in Greensboro...
