February 1, 2007
Jacksonville, FL --- Edward Waters College has gone in house to find its next head football coach. Kevin Clark an assistant coach for the past three years, has been promoted to head coach. He was formally introduced at a press conference Wednesday (1/31).
“I am elated to be in this position and I am looking forward, with confidence, to the upcoming season,” stated Clark,
who was also special teams coordinator and linebacker coach of the 2004 SEAC Conference Champions. “We are currently in winter workouts, meeting every two weeks, and the players are looking very strong. They are already anticipating an upcoming winning season.”
“We knew that Clark would be the best fit for the program,” said Johnny Rembert, EWC’s athletic director. “He fits as a leader as well as someone the players can emulate and learn from. We’re grateful and excited that he accepted the role.”
Clark, a native of Fort Sill, Oklahoma, was instrumental in helping revive the football program at EWC in 2001, after it had been dormant for 34 years. He is a graduate of Norfolk State University where he was a four-year
letterman free safety, earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in physical education.
While serving in the US Army, Clark started his coaching career as linebackers and special teams coach of
Nuremberg [Germany] American High School football team. Clark went on to coach defensive secondary and
special teams for the Columbia Cougars Semi-Pro football team (1993-94). As the linebacker, defensive backs,
strength and conditioning, and special teams coordinator with Benedict College Tigers (1995-2001), Clark
developed a two-time NAIA First Team All-American punter.
