Bob Clark begins his third season as the Associate Head Coach at the College of Charleston and 38th overall in coaching.
Clark enters his third season after having spent the previous two campaigns under former head coach Natasha Adair. Known around the country as one of the best game management coaches in the business, Clark's wealth of experience will certainly benefit first year head coach Candice M. Jackson.
“I couldn’t be any happier that Bob decided to stay,” said Jackson. “His wealth of knowledge and experience will play a big part in what we do here. He is a family guy and this is going to be a family atmosphere. I really like what he is going to bring from that standpoint and am thrilled to have him.”
Over the past two years Clark has helped the Cougars achieve one of their most successful two year stints in program history, combining for 35 wins and consecutive trips to the Women's Basketball Invitational.
Prior to joining the Cougar family, Clark helped guide the Wake Forest Demon Deacons to a 20-14 record and an appearance in second round of the WNIT.
In his first season in Winston-Salem, Clark also helped guide Wake Forest an 18-14 record overall and a fifth place finish in the ACC. Seven of those wins came in conference play, which was the second-highest conference win total in school-history.
In his second year with the program, the Demon Deacons began the season with a record-setting 12-0 start. In January, the nation began to recognize Wake Forest's achievements and the Demon Deacons were voted into the Top 25 for the first time since the 1987-88 season.
Prior to his arrival at Wake Forest, Clark served as the head coach for the girls' basketball team at Loch Raven High School in Baltimore, Md. for the 2006-07 season. After leading Loch Raven to the finals of the Region 2A North tournament, Clark was named the Coach of the Year for the Baltimore metropolitan area by the Baltimore Examiner. After going 10-11 the previous season, Clark led the Raiders to a 19-4 record in his only year.
During Clark's six seasons at Georgetown (1998-2004), he helped the Hoyas to four WNIT bids and also served as the recruiting coordinator for three of those campaigns.
Clark has also been an important part of four teams that advanced to NCAA tournament play. While an assistant at Radford (1994-1996), Clark's teams won the Big South Tournament earning an automatic bid to the NCAA's in each of his two seasons. Clark also helped guide Providence (1990-93), to two at-large bids to the NCAA Tournament while racking up an impressive 62-30 record. During the 1990-91 season, the Lady Friars also led all Division I schools with a 96.7 scoring average.
Clark's first collegiate position was as an assistant men's basketball coach at Roanoke College (1984-86) in Salem, Va., for two seasons. During that time, Roanoke won the Old Dominion Athletic Conference title and competed in the Division III National Tournament each season.
Clark, a Philadelphia native, is a 1984 graduate of Towson University with a degree in elementary education. Clark is married to the former Kristen Morast and the couple live in Mount Pleasant with their two daughters, Alyssa (15) and Brittany (11).
