Tigers Win: Jay Clark

It’s difficult enough to replace a legend. Add a global pandemic to the mix, and you couldn’t ask for a more difficult stage to debut as LSU’s head gymnastics coach. But Jay Clark took everything in stride in his first year, leading the Tigers back to the national championships and to the brink of Four on the Floor. Only a few minor stumbles prevented LSU from national championship contention on the final day.

Tigers Win: Jay Clark

It’s difficult enough to replace a legend. Add a global pandemic to the mix, and you couldn’t ask for a more difficult stage to debut as LSU’s head gymnastics coach.

But Jay Clark took everything in stride in his first year, leading the Tigers back to the national championships and to the brink of Four on the Floor. Only a few minor stumbles prevented LSU from national championship contention on the final day. 

That’s at the forefront of Clark’s thinking as he heads into his first normal-ish off-season at the helm. He’ll bring back tons of experience in 2021-22, add a loaded recruiting class, and welcome an incredible home schedule. 

All that, and more, on today’s episode.
