Clark led Division II Barton College to an 11-5-2 record last season after spending eight years as the head coach at Division I Campbell University of the Big South Conference.

“Todd is an experienced head coach who has a proven ability to build successful soccer programs that compete for conference championships,” Maher said in the release.

Canisius went 6-14-0 last year and 5-5-0 in the MAAC under Jim Wendling, who stepped down at the end of the season. He had coached Canisius for seven years.

“I believe we can be successful at Canisius,” Clark said in the release. “I’ve already spoken to a number of players on the team and some of the pieces of the puzzle are already in place as we work toward the ultimate goal of winning a MAAC championship.”

Canisius has never won a MAAC championship in women’s soccer. The team made it to the championship game in 2010, where it lost to Siena in overtime, and in 1994, when it lost to Loyola.
