Coaches

Beau Clark

Beau ClarkBeau Clark enters his first year as the University of Wyoming rodeo team head coach. The UW program has enjoyed traditionally successful rodeo teams in the past, and with the transition of a new rodeo coach, UW is experiencing excitement for the future of college rodeo at the university.

“The University of Wyoming rodeo program is rich in terms of tradition, success and storied history. It is exciting to be the head coach at the University of Wyoming because UW rodeo has been a program for so many student athletes who graduated from the University of Wyoming and followed their passions to become successful in businesses, agriculture, art, science, health professions, education, engineering, law, as well as professional rodeo,” Clark says. “This is one of the unique rodeo programs across the country that has the ability to help students maximize their potential in rodeo, and also as career and life passions.”

Clark has experienced success in rodeo himself as a professional steer wrestler and college rodeo coach. In 2012, he qualified as a steer wrestler for the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. He also has won steer wrestling circuit titles in both the Montana Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Circuit and the Mountain States PRCA Circuit. Clark is a two-time qualifier for the Dodge National Finals rodeo and has placed at every major PRCA rodeo across the country. He continues to compete in the Mountain State Circuit as well as local rodeos.

“I have always enjoyed competing and practicing for all sports. As long as I can remember, I have had a sport or competition to practice and prepare for. My love of competition is partially driven by the feelings and energy of competition,” he says. “What really fuels my desire to compete, comes from the satisfaction of preparation and hard work. I think for someone to be successful at anything, you have to learn how to enjoy challenge, adversity, work and all the stuff we go through to compete at a high level. I am one of the people who truly enjoys ‘the process’ and everything that comes with a commitment to our personal best effort.”

Clark is married to Charli Mae Clark; the couple have two children, Caysen and Kyler Clark.

“Charli comes from a rodeo family and she shares a passion for the sport of rodeo. Almost all of our entire family is involved with rodeo or athletics of some sort. It means a lot to our family to have the opportunity to help young people maximize their potential for the sport of rodeo at the University of Wyoming,” Clark says. “Our family also is excited to be members of the Laramie, Wyo., community. Laramie is a special place that embraces family values, agriculture, rodeo and education. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to live in Laramie and be a part of an amazing community.”

Clark’s educational background is a combination of agriculture and sports psychology. He graduated from Montana State University with a bachelor’s degree in agriculture business. In 2018, Clark completed a master’s degree program from the University of Missouri in positive coaching with an emphasis in sports psychology.

“Education has greatly impacted my family and the different careers that we are all involved with today. I am a huge supporter of education because it is a key piece to success for all careers and life passions,” he says. “I am lucky to be able to have an opportunity to study ag business, positive coaching and sports psychology because all of my education continually impacts my life decisions as a father, husband, rodeo athlete and rodeo coach. I am dedicated to the promotion and encouragement for young people to explore different educational opportunities and commit to excellence within their education. I strongly believe that unique and beneficial opportunities become available to those who demonstrate a commitment for academic excellence.”

Past College Rodeo Coaching

Clark was the head coach for Laramie County Community College (LCCC) from 2016-18. During the two years he was LCCC’s head coach, the rodeo program transitioned into a competitive program for both the men’s and women’s teams.

Clark was an assistant coach for the Montana State University (MSU) rodeo program from 2013-15. Former UW rodeo athlete Mike True was the head coach who hired Clark at MSU.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better rodeo coach mentor than Mike True. Mike is still my ‘go to guy’ when I have a question about college rodeo and coaching,” Clark says. “One of the many reasons it is exciting to be at the University of Wyoming is because Mike was a rodeo student athlete and graduate of UW.”
