    Wake Forest Bio:

    Clark Lea joined the Wake Forest coaching staff as the linebackers coach in 2016. Lea was most recently the linebacker coach at Syracuse.
    Lea spent three seasons with the Orange following a one-year stint with head coach Dave Clawson at Bowling Green State University in 2012. There, Lea worked with defensive coordinator Mike Elko to assemble a unit that ranked seventh in the nation in pass defense, ninth in scoring defense and sixth nationally in third-down defense while leading the Mid-American Conference in nine statistical categories.

    Lea was a finalist for Linebackers Coach of the Year by FootballScoop.com in 2012.

    He is a 2004 graduate of Vanderbilt where he earned three letters in football and was a two-time All-SEC Academic Team pick. In 2005 he was a finalist for the John Wooden Cup and the recipient of the H. Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete Award.

    Following his graduation from Vanderbilt, he became a graduate assistant at UCLA in 2005-06 before moving to South Dakota State for two seasons in 2007. He returned to UCLA in 2009 to coach linebackers before taking the same position at Bowling Green in 2012.

    Lea began his college career at Birmingham-Southern College where he was a member of the baseball team that captured the NAIA World Series title in 2001. He lettered in baseball at Belmont in 2002 before moving to Vanderbilt.

    Lea and his wife Allison have a son, Clark III and a daughter, Mara.

      Maybe he can improve on the staff's 1-77 performance in GA since Rochell Rochell?

      ...and yes, the one player they got was a punter.

                  I was just waiting on the responses of him running away from the two midgets at 1:30 and the next two plays where he commits child abuse by trucking the shorties. That's rural, 1A football at it's finest. No wonder he ran for 2200 yds.

                                  Jan. 28, 2017

                                  My relationship with Mike Elko has been built over two stints working together --in between which we have shared a friendship and mutual respect – and I believe he’s perhaps the best defensive coordinator in the country. He’s not only a great football mind, but he also melds that with an ability to form relationships with young people--and the product on the field is the result of both these components. So the opportunity for me to continue to learn and grow with Mike was something that was exciting to me, especially considering the magnitude of the football program at Notre Dame.

                                  Growing up, Notre Dame was actually my dream school. Unfortunately, I wasn’t quite good enough to make the cut, so I guess I wasn’t their dream player. But it’s certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to work here and represent Notre Dame. This program is unique in all that it encompasses--the history, the tradition and the program’s place in college football. Combine that with a degree that’s second to none. It’s just the kind of work environment you want to be in. However, ultimately my decision to come here hinged on one point and that was the ability to go to a place and compete for a national championship. As a competitor, what more could you ask for? There are a lot of things that made this a great fit for me, but as a competitor that aspect made it really easy.

                                  My baseball experience was valuable to me --those coaches helped me tremendously (he played at Birmingham-Southern and Belmont). I think I always had the football bone in my body even as a baseball player. Sometimes I approached the game as if it were football, which usually led to poor results because the skill set is not quite the same. But even when I was playing baseball, I used to think about coaching football. There’s just no other sport that pushes you to your limits physically, mentally and emotionally the way that football does. The lessons and values inherent in football and the way you go through the process of building yourself as a player make the game so special. I’m a different person, a better version of myself today because of my football experience.

                                  Notre Dame went to Vanderbilt to play in 1996. My dad went to Vandy, as did my uncle, so they were horrified when I wore my Notre Dame T-shirt to the game. My first time being on campus at Notre Dame was in 1995, when Vandy travelled to South Bend to play. It’s easy to fall in love with all that’s involved with game day at Notre Dame. In 2006 I was part of the UCLA program that came here and lost a heartbreaker on a last-second pass (Brady Quinn to Jeff Samardzija). So I was able to get here a couple of times prior, once professionally. I have a great respect for the place. When I was at Bowling Green, it was our one-year wedding anniversary. My wife was eight months pregnant, and we decided to drive from Bowling Green to Chicago. Along the way we pulled off just to look at the Notre Dame campus. It’s one of those places that gets you off the highway.

                                  I am incredibly indebted to (Wake Forest head coach) Dave Clawson. He has really shaped me as a coach, as a thinker and as a processor more than anyone I’ve been with. It’s his systematic approach to building a program. There’s a focus on discipline--there’s something really powerful that he harnesses and applies in his process. He demands a lot of his coaches as well. Two times in my career I’ve been on a staff that was let go, and that’s a scary thing--both times he’s pulled me off the couch and given me an opportunity and a chance to grow and thrive as a coach. Chuck Bullough trained me as a linebacker coach. I cut my teeth under Chuck, and he believed in me enough to bring me back to UCLA when I was a very young coach. He also gave me an opportunity to work at Syracuse University. John Stiegelmeier is the head coach at South Dakota State--he gave me my first full-time job as a linebacker coach, which also led to me meeting my wife. Coach Stig has quietly built one of the premier programs in the FCS, and he has done it by being detailed, organized and demanding, while also treating his players with great respect. I learned a lot from Coach Stig about how to treat players, how to effectively communicate with players. We did not use profanity on the field at South Dakota State--you had to coach, teach and engage your kids every day. That left a lasting impact on me. Scott Shafer is another coach who has shaped me. I worked for him for three years at Syracuse and learned a lot about defensive football from him. He has a progression and believes it and sells it every day--he has been a powerful influence. Rick Neuheisel at UCLA--he taught me how to give a campus tour--one of the most relentless recruiters I’ve ever met. He’s another brilliant mind who gave me a chance at a young age and believed in me. Karl Dorrell got me started at UCLA when I was finished at Vanderbilt--I certainly would not be where I am now without that opportunity. Obviously I feel very fortunate and grateful to all the coaches that have helped me plot my course in this profession.

                                  We’re coming in fresh, but we also need to embrace the program where it is. The standards are in place here at Notre Dame. We are focused forward--this is a talented team. Coach (Brian) Kelly has done some unbelievable things within the organization to grow leadership. These players are hungry to win. It’s a determined group. All you can ask for as a coach is to be with a group of men who are eager to be led and taught and grow through the process. So this is going to be a lot of fun for me to dig in, lock arms and make this team as good as we can make it.

                                  I feel I owe it to these players to do my research so that I can give them my best from day one. I’ll watch a little tape of all of them and identify some things we can focus on improving as a starting point. That’s important. The start of the process of building trust involves being consistent and setting expectations, but also opening up a dialogue that leads to their improvement as players. When you do that you earn respect as a coach, and it allows for you to have influence in other areas of their lives outside of football. So I’ll want to watch a little film on each guy so I can know where we are starting and construct a vision for where we need to go. The cool thing is that anytime there’s something new it’s exciting, so I am eager to get to work. I am anxious because we do not have a ton of time, and there is a lot to get accomplished. The system must be installed and the players need to have a clear understanding of their responsibilities so we can go into the summer and really build toward the season. Mike (Elko) does a great job of structuring things to make this process efficient and effective, and I’m excited to be a part of building this system from the ground up--I’ve never had the chance to do that.

                                    Defensive Coordinator Search 2018

                                    Bye Mike. Im already sick of seeing his thread on the front page, so heres a new one to discuss the DC search. Here are some of the realistic names that Ive seen floated:

                                    - Clark Lea ND Linebackers coach
                                    - Mike Elston ND Defensive Line coach
                                    - Pete Kwiatowski Washington DC
                                    - Scottie Hazelton Wyoming DC
                                    - Kevin Kane Northern Illinois DC
                                    - Orlondo Steinauer Fresno State DC
                                    - Andy Avalos Boise State DC
                                    - Larry Johnson Ohio State DL coach
                                    - Anthony Campanile Boston College DB Coach

                                    And some additional names Ill throw out there:

                                    - Tracy Claeys Former HC at Minnesota and DC under Kill, was nominated for the Broyles in 2013 & 2014. The Gophers had some good defenses under his watch, but the cloud around his exit could mark him as too toxic for ND.
                                    - Jay Sawvel Current DC at Wake Forest. Previously the DC at Minnesota under Claeys and DB coach before that under Kill .The Gophers had a top 25 defense during his one year tenure as DC. The Deacons took a step back defensively this year, but I understand that at least in part that was a personnel issue with a solid DL, but weak back seven. WF folks seem to be optimistic with their defense going forward. Sawvel was a grad assistant at ND from 96-99 and has a Masters from ND. Has a reputation as a solid recruiter.
                                    - Chad Glasgow TCU DC. Gary Patterson 4-2-5 coaching tree.

                                    I believe that ND will end up with a combination of Lea and Elston as co-DCs in the end. Hopefully Tillery and Coney will be inspired to stick around in that situation to help lead the team forward.

                                          Larry Johnson seems like a good bet, but I honestly dont know much about most of these names or assistants in general. I suspect BK returns to familiarity and goes with Elston.

                                            Wyoming guy looks interesting. He turned them into a top ten D in one season. Coached for Polian at Nevada. Also has worked at USC and the NFL.

                                              I would almost rather have them higher either Lea or someone from the outside, Larry Johnson would be a home run higher, I know he is a great DL coach and recruits rave about him but I just don't see it happening.

                                                Im intrigued too. The 2018 roster could run the Tampa 2 effectively. My only question is his recruiting chops, though someone noted that hes credited with getting Ty Isaac to sign with USC.

                                                  Lots of talk this year how other teams were neg recruiting against pOSU and Larry Johnson and his age (he’s either 65or 66) telling recruits that he will likely retire before they graduate. Neg recruiting against him as a DC would be a lot worse.

                                                    Seemed to really hurt OSU recruiting too....

                                                        So now that everyone knows we lost Elko over a few hundred thousand, our guy needs to be satisfied with less than that or its pointless to have let Elko go.

                                                        I'd take Hazleton based on performance and experience. Dont think Johnson is a fit. I am afraid of losing Elston and Lea though as well if someone from outside is brought in.

                                                          Thinking Elston as the DC with Lea as the Co-DC. Promotion of both and continuity. Look for S position coach and move forward.
                                                          I have invested everything BUT tuition for Notre Dame. I make no apologies.

                                                              This - or maybe Hazelton - seem like best bets to me.
                                                              Doesn't seem like the guy from U-Dub is ever going to leave Petersen. We need a hustler on the trail and I'd Johnson's too old for that. Sawvel seems like an interesting idea, I guess. Think we could snag Don Brown from Michigan?

                                                                Anyone know if the Elko 4-2-5 is run like Gary Patterson’s, splitting the DL/LB play calling from the DBs? If so, and presuming a Lea / Elston co-DC situation would keep the same scheme, who takes over the DB play calling?

No. The Aggies are desperate, and desperate people will give anything. The point Ol' Crus is making is that Elko was playing both sides off each other, and the Aggies would always be willing to drop more cash, just to win. I hope Elko likes being below a damn dog on the totem pole down in College Station, but he'll know soon enough how bad of a mistake saying "yes" to desperate people can be.

No they said 1.8 is too much to keep Elko regardless. That is clear evidence that they wont pay that much. They have never paid that much. They are not going to do that even though Elko was a great hire. If they hire someone else now for more konwy, it seems stupid to have not countering for Elko.

                                                                              I am unaware if its true Elko was trying to play a bidding war or if he was unhappy in SB so I am not acknowledging that as it would be a very serious accusation for a man who worked for the same head coach for over a decade. What is clear is that ND wasnt willing to to the few extra yards to retain him.

Replacing two good coaches on that side of the ball and bringing in another new scheme (3rd in 3 years) is asking for Tillery and Coney to leave for sure, and even Tranquill to change his mind.

That sounds like a bidding war to me, and Jack refused to play.

That sounds like a bidding war to me, and Jack refused to play.



                                                                                    Yeah I'm with this one. I wonder if Jack can take the money saved from promoting Lea and go balls to the wall for an elite DB coach

                                                                                        Negging is part of the job. Doesnt mean you hate the school you are negging. Means you are trying to improve your team with the players you want. Dont think ND nor anyone else doesnt do it

Replacing two good coaches on that side of the ball and bringing in another new scheme (3rd in 3 years) is asking for Tillery and Coney to leave for sure, and even Tranquill to change his mind.

                                                                                          I think any outside hire is asking for trouble.
