Steve Clark joined the BYU football staff on January 25, 2016. He brings two decades of coaching experience from Weber State, Southern Utah, Utah, BYU, Saint Mary’s College and Provo High School.
Most recently, the BYU graduate has been the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Weber State for the past two seasons. In 2015 he helped the Wildcats to a 6-5 season, Weber State’s first winning season in five years. Clark has had 10 players earn Big Sky All-Conference honors during his two years, including first-team Walter Camp All-America offensive line selection Joe Hawkins.
Clark was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Southern Utah for six seasons from 2008-13, working under Ed Lamb, current BYU assistant head coach. Clark’s offenses helped lead the Thunderbirds to their first FCS playoff berth in school history in 2013 and a Great West Conference championship in 2010. Southern Utah’s top four single-season receiving yards and five of the top six completions and passing yards efforts were set during the six seasons under Clark. Quarterback Brad Sorensen and wide receiver Tysson Poots each earned Great West Conference Offensive MVP honors at SUU with Clark. Sorensen finished his career with several SUU passing records and was drafted in the 2012 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers while Poots was a two-time All-American and the school’s all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns.
Prior to going to SUU, Clark was at BYU from 2005-07, working with the offensive line and special teams as a graduate assistant. He helped the Cougars to back-to-back 11-win seasons in 2006 and 2007 and three consecutive bowl games.
He spent the 2004 season as a defensive assistant under Urban Meyer at Utah, helping the Utes to a 12-0 season and Fiesta Bowl championship. In 2003, Clark worked at Saint Mary’s College as the passing game coordinator and was the director of football operations at Utah in 2002. He also spent time at Provo High School from 1994-2000, including three seasons as the offensive coordinator before joining the college ranks.
A native of Provo, Clark graduated from BYU in 1992 with a degree in communications. He and his wife Suzanne have four children.
