Jordan Clark just completed her second season as the Razorbacks’ volunteer assistant. She came to Fayetteville prior to the 2016 campaign after two years as an instructor with Diamond Athletics in Marion, Ark.
Clark, who is Arkansas’ first-base coach, is part of the staff that led the program to a 17-win improvement from 2016 to 2017, and guided the Razorbacks to an at-large selection to the NCAA Tournament. Among her day-to-day coaching responsibilities, she works directly with Arkansas’ outfielders and the team’s base running.
Away from the field, Clark leads the Razorbacks’ community outreach with local youth leagues and teams, and is instrumental in Arkansas’ skills academies throughout the season and its camps during the summer.
In her former role with Diamond Athletics, Clark provided one-on-one lessons and organized skills clinics. During that time, she was a coach in the Desoto County School District in Olive Branch, Miss. She also has past experience in travel ball as a co-head coach for the 14U softball team within the New Jersey Intensity program.
Clark—formerly Jordan McElroy—was a four-year standout (2009-12) at Miami University where she finished her playing career with top-five program rankings in at-bats, runs, hits and walks. She was a two-year team captain, two-time Mid-American Conference performer and the 2012 recipient of the MAC’s Nan Harvey Sportsmanship Award. Clark helped Miami to a pair of MAC Tournament titles and NCAA Tournament berths in 2009 and 2012.
She married Todd Clark in June 2017, and the couple resides in Fayetteville.
