Evan Clark is in his second season as an assistant for the Maryland men's tennis team.
Clark helped guide the Terps to their first NCAA tournament berth in school history in 2010-11. Maryland knocked off the University of Michigan in the opening round and finished the season No. 39 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) rankings.
Clark, who spent the previous two seasons as an assistant for the Penn State women's program, has seen his share of successes both on and off the tennis court. He was instrumental in the Nittany Lions' signing of Canada's top-ranked Petra Januskova and five-star player Amy Simidian.
Prior to his stint with the Nittany Lions, Clark served as the program manager for junior competition and development for the United States Tennis Association (USTA). In his role with the USTA, Clark was responsible for overseeing and coordinating the junior competition circuit for the Missouri Valley Section.
After a stint with the Razorbacks, Clark finished his collegiate career at the University of Missouri-Kansas City where he earned first team All-Mid-Continent Conference honors in both 2003 and 2004.
Prior to college, Clark won the Missouri state championship as a senior as he posted a 31-0 record. He was voted the Kansas City Star Tennis Male Athlete of the Year in 2002 for the Kansas City Metro Area.
He graduated from UMKC in 2006 with a degree in psychology.
