Clark, 26, served as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator at Male High School in Louisville last year. He is a 2003 graduate of Bowling Green High School and a Western Kentucky University graduate.
Clark previously served as an assistant coach at Logan County and was a quality control assistant coach at Western Kentucky University.
He takes over for Dixie Jones, who resigned in November. Hopkinsville High had offered the job to at least two other candidates before interviewing Clark. However, Clark has some ties to Christian County. His wife Mariah Hammonds Clark grew up in Hopkinsville at a young age before moving away, and the new coach has had family that have lived in the Pembroke area.
The complete interview with Clark can be heard on the Saturday Morning Sports Report at 8:10am on WKDZ-FM.
