After two seasons at the helm as head coach, Billy Clark is stepping down at Palm Beach Gardens to return to his alma mater, Park Vista.
However, you won’t find Clark coaching on the Park Vista sideline.
In the news, which was first reported by Chris Kokell at 640 The Hurricane in West Palm Beach and later confirmed by Adam Lichtenstein at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel late Friday morning, announced that Clark was stepping down to pursue a goal of becoming a school administrator. With that move will have Clark joining the leadership team at Park Vista.

“He cares about kids and the program, even here he cares about our kids,” Palm Beach Gardens athletic director Karyn Hart told the Sun-Sentinel. “He’s just an upstanding man that’s just pursuing a different career path in education. I totally support him, and he’ll do well. He’ll do very well.”
