The common denominator between the three head coaches in Robert Morris football history is NFL pedigree.
Introduced as the program’s third head coach on December 20, former UAlbany defensive coordinator Bernard Clark owns a resume that features three years of NFL playing experience and the 1987 Orange Bowl MVP award.
Clark, who competed collegiately as a linebacker with the Miami Hurricanes, began coaching at James Madison in 1998. He has since made stops at Liberty, FIU, South Florida, Hampton and Pitt.

Bernard Clark hates cell phones, the N-word, and was introduced to coaching through what he calls a “God situation.”
He aims to make Robert Morris’ football program a formidable one https://t.co/cNbyVZL3ZR

New Robert Morris football coach Bernard Clark has three rules.
-Be on time.
-Don’t use cell phone in meetings.
-No “n-word” use.
Very interesting. Said the last one is about respect for all. Good for him.
