CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Jamie Clark has stepped down as the Virginia B. and James O. Welch '52 Head Coach for Harvard Men's Soccer, to take the head coach position at Creighton.

Clark, who served as head coach of the Crimson for two seasons, guided Harvard to a 26-10-1 (.716) overall record, including a 10-3-1 mark (.750) in Ivy League contests. He helped the Crimson win the program's 13th Ivy League title in 2009, as the team went 14-4-1 and reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament. Clark also led the Crimson to a 12-6 overall mark and the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2008.

In its storied program history, Harvard has advanced to the NCAA Championships 16 times , including the last four seasons. The Crimson has won 13 Ivy League championships and has had six players selected in the MLS SuperDraft, including three in the last two years.

A national search for a successor is already underway.
