We are writing to let you know that Todd Clark has
announced his resignation as LESD head coach and CEO as well as
head swim coach at Hawken.
Todd was hired after a national search and came here to
continue LESD’s swimming legacy. He has much to be proud of
during his tenure, including coaching multiple national qualifiers,
being named Club of the Year by Lake Erie Swimming, and earning the
second highest honor of Silver Medal for the 2019 Club Excellence
by USA Swimming. While he has been thrilled with all of these
accomplishments, Todd feels that continued separation of his family
in both Cleveland and Pittsburgh and the persistent demands of the
multifaceted positions warrant a change at this time.
We will soon be launching a national search to secure
Todd’s replacement and will be keeping the community’s
combined feedback in mind during these next steps. We are confident
that this process will ensure that LESD’s strong program and
national caliber training traditions will continue to thrive and
support your Silver Dolphins.
Todd will remain with LESD and continue to coach the Gold Group
at Hawken Upper School into the summer to support us in this
transition. We hope you will join me in showing your
appreciation for Todd’s contributions and in wishing him and
his family well.
