Jamie Clark leaves Creighton

[WASHINGTON MEN] After one season as head coach at Creighton, Jamie Clark is on the move again. He has accepted the heading coaching position at the University of Washington.

Clark led the Bluejays to a Missouri Valley regular-season championship and an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament, where they defeated New Mexico 4-1 in the first round before being eliminated in penalty kicks following a 2-2 draw at seventh-ranked SMU in the second round.

The son of Notre Dame coach Bobby Clark, Jamie Clark previously coached at Harvard for two seasons. He had starred as a player under his father's tutelage at Stanford.

"I am delighted to be back on the West Coast and part of the Pac-12 Conference," Clark said. "There is no better conference in the country for student-athletes. As a player, I was fortunate to compete in this league, and now I look forward to coaching in this environment. To be the best in the Pac-12 means you are one of the nation's top couple of teams."

Clark replaces longtime Huskies coach Dean Wurzberger, who resigned for family reasons late last fall.
