Enforcers Announce Departure of First Coach in Franchise History

by Jon Kliment

The Elmira Enforcers will have a new look behind the bench next season as Head Coach Brent Clarke is leaving the team as of today. Coach Clarke has accepted a position with the Watertown Wolves, also of the FPHL, and will begin next season there.


During his time here in Elmira, Brent led the Enforcers to a 57-33-8-8 record as well as leading the Enforcers to the Championship round in his first season behind the bench. Coach Clarke also led the team to a franchise long 10 game winning streak in his second season, while the Enforcers were setting the pace for the second half of the season securing points in 23 of their last 24 games and winning 21 of those 24 games.


Coach Clarke and his wife Marah are very excited as Brent has the opportunity to return to coach in his hometown.


“I certainly enjoyed my time in Elmira and truly felt a bond with the owners, Robbie and Nellie Nichols who have treated me extremely well during these two years. I would like to thank the players, the staff, and the fans who truly made my time in Elmira special and I wish I had been able to bring the Cup here. This is a bittersweet time for me because of the relationships and family atmosphere, but now I am going back to familiar territory where I will get to be with my family.” Coach Clarke told media members.


The Enforcers wish Coach well on his future endeavors and are now searching for the second coach in franchise history ahead of the 2020-2021 FPHL season.
