“I am very happy to welcome Marquis Clark to the ETSU Volleyball family and staff,” said Devine. “I knew after interviewing Marquis that he was a perfect fit for our program. He has a strong work ethic, passion for the sport, and brings high statistical volleyball knowledge to our program.”

As for Clark, he’s excited to be on board and hopes to help guide the Bucs to another NCAA Tournament appearance.

“I'm excited to be part of the ETSU family,” commented Clark. “Getting the opportunity to coach Division I volleyball is an honor and I’m extremely lucky to get the chance to work for an amazing coach in Lindsey Devine. I'm looking forward to meeting the team, and getting to work on helping this group win another conference championship and get back to the NCAA Tournament.”

During his time at Wichita State, Clark was in charge of scouting, analyzing team and opponent statistics, creating game plans, working with player training and helping with skill and team camps. Last season, Wichita State was ranked in the top 25 of the AVCA Coaches Poll and made its seventh straight NCAA Tournament appearance after finishing the season at 28-7.

Clark received his first head coaching position at Cloud County Community College in May of 2010. During his three years with the T-Birds, Clark coached a pair of KJCCC all-conference selections, while also directing Cloud County to the NJCAA Region VI Tournament in each of the three seasons. Clark was also in charge of recruiting, team budgets, strength training, and assisted with local club teams in player and coach development.

Along with his stints at Dodge City Community College and Manhattan High School, Clark has also coached on the club circuit. Clark coached the Kansas Volleyball Club from 2008-12, ICT Elite from 2012-13 and the Shockwave Volleyball Academy from 2013-14.
