Coach Clark joins the Just Hoops family after a long career of playing and coaching the game of basketball. He is a lifelong Plain City resident and 2002 graduate of Jonathan Alder High School where he eclipsed the 1000-point mark in his career (Just behind legendary coach Rod Bentley). After high school, Darren went on to play collegiately for the Beavers of Bluffton University in Northwest Ohio.
Darren graduated from Bluffton in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, and in 2012 with Masters in Education Administration from Ashland University. He has spent the last 15 years teaching Math at Jonathan Alder High School. Darren has coached in a variety of roles throughout his coaching career but recently stepped away from coaching in 2017 when he and his wife, Jackie, gave birth to their 3 daughters (Samantha, Sunday and Sloane). Darren is super excited to have the opportunity to get back in the gym and work with young people on improving their skills and enjoying the game of basketball.Back to Coaches List
