Clark Leaves Prattville for South Alabama

Calling it one of the hardest days of his life, Bill Clark told his Prattville players Wednesday he's leaving the Lions to become the defensive coordinator and assistant head coach at the University of South Alabama.

In nine seasons at Prattville, Clark built a dynasty.  His record, 106-11, includes 30 consecutive victories and back-to-back 6A state championships.

Clark will be working for one of his best friends, Jaguars head coach Joey Jones.

Clark tells WSFA 12 sports he wavered Tuesday, while still leaning toward accepting the college position.

He says he finally decided Wednesday during lunch, before telling his players a few hours later.

Clark says he hopes Prattville will promote one of his assistants to become the Lions' next coach.

Prattville offensive coordinator Jamey DuBose will take over on an interim basis.
