HELENA -- Harry Clark has been named the new head coach of the Carroll College track and cross country teams.
Clark replaces Matt Morris, who resigned Thursday to pursue other coaching opportunities.
Clark, who spent the past year as assistant coach for the Saints, joined the Carroll program last summer after spending 11 seasons as an assistant at the University of Montana. With the Grizzlies, he coached the sprints, hurdles and throws and worked with numerous Big Sky Conference indoor and outdoor champions.
"Harry has a tremendous reputation in Montana and the Northwest as an outstanding coach and recruiter," said Carroll athletic director Bruce Parker. "I am confident that Harry and his staff will continue to build on the great success, both in the classroom and in competition, that they have enjoyed the past three years.”
Morris’ tenure as Carroll’s head coach produced 34 All-America honorees, three individual national champions, six runner-up places at nationals and four cross country Frontier Conference team championships (three consecutive on the women's side).
Morris was named the league’s cross country coach of the year on three occasions.
“I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to coach at Carroll College and feel very blessed to have worked alongside so many great coaches and student-athletes,” Morris said. “I am very proud of what we accomplished as a program in such a short period of time and I wish the track and field/cross country programs nothing but success in the future.”
