Canisius announced Friday evening that head women’s soccer coach Todd Clark has stepped down after five seasons with the program. 

Clark announced that he is leaving due to his wife taking a job in North Carolina.

“Our entire experience in the Western New York community has been absolutely tremendous, and I want to be very clear that we are not leaving here, but rather going elsewhere based on family,” Clark said in an official release. 

“The culture of the team, the focus of the program and the ability to bring wonderful student-athletes to Canisius will be something I remember fondly. The players at Canisius are exceptional young ladies and I am certain they will be successful next fall,” he added. 

Assistant coach Ryan Louis has been named the interim head coach, and a full search will commence once the campus is re-opened due to Coronavirus. 

“I would like to thank Todd for his service and commitment in leading our women’s soccer program,” athletic director Bill Maher said in a statement. “I wish him and his family the best of luck as they pursue future endeavors.” 

Clark leaves Canisius with a five-year record of 32-44-12, including a mark of 15-27-8 in MAAC play. The Griffs went 7-8-2 in the 2019 season.
