It's official, UAB has hired Bill Clark away from Jacksonville State to become UAB's head football coach. This comes after days of speculation and reports about Clark and his interest in the Blazers.
Jacksonville State President, Dr. William A. Meehan released the following statement earlier today: "We're very proud for Bill and the success that he had at Jacksonville State. He is a JSU grad and we are excited about his personal success and we are grateful for the success he brought to the Gamecocks this year."
Clark will become UAB's 5th head coach; the blazers have only been playing football since the early 90's. During his only season with Jacksonville State, Clark lead the Gamecocks to a 11-4 record, and trip to the FCS quarterfinals.
