Ian Clark Named Head Men’s Wrestling Coach

ELMIRA, N.Y. — Following an extensive search, Elmira College Director of Athletics Renee Carlineo is pleased to announce the appointment of Ian Clark as head coach of the Soaring Eagles’ men’s wrestling program.

Clark faces the unique challenge of building a program from the ground up. Although EC briefly sponsored men’s wrestling during the 1970s, the Soaring Eagles will return to the mat for the first time in nearly four decades during the 2020-21 academic year.

“We are incredibly excited to have Ian as the first head coach of Elmira College men’s wrestling,” Carlineo said. “Ian is a passionate coach, hard-working recruiter, and a strong teacher. We could not be more eager to see what he can do in building this program from the ground up.”
