MOST COMMENTED

[COLLEGE] Creighton has named Harvard coach Jamie Clark, the 33-year-old son of Notre Dame coach Bobby Clark, as its new head coach, replacing Bob Warming, who took the Penn State job.

Clark comes to Creighton after serving as the head coach at Harvard for the past two seasons, leading the Crimson to the NCAA Tournament in each of his first two seasons as a collegiate head coach.

He becomes just the third Bluejay coach since the program was restarted in 1990.

“Jamie Clark is one of the great young soccer minds in the country,” said Creighton Director of Athletics Bruce Rasmussen.  “He is passionate and extremely intelligent about college soccer and has high character.  Jamie is a great recruiter and has an outstanding relationship with his players.  He is very much like [former Creighton head coaches] Bob Warming and Bret Simon.  We look forward to a long and successful coaching career for Jamie at Creighton.”

Clark notched a 26-10-1 overall record and was named the NSCAA Northeast Region Coach of the Year in 2009.

"I had an incredible experience at Harvard and it took a very special opportunity to pull me away," said Clark.  "After speaking with Bruce Rasmussen, I knew this was the place that I wanted to continue my coaching career.  I'm following two fantastic coaches and I hope to continue the fine tradition of Creighton soccer."

Clark is a 1999 Stanford graduate, where he was a two-time All-American and played for his father from 1996-98.

The Bluejays open their 2010 regular-season at Loyola (Ill.) on Sept. 1.  Clark, who was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, will coach in his first regular-season home match at Morrison Stadium on Sept. 4 when the Jays host UNC Greensboro.
