Clark Sheehy enters his fourth year as assistant director of athletics and seventh season as head coach of the men's basketball program, having guided the Golden Eagles to back-to-back NAIA National Championships appearances in 2012 and 2013.

Sheehy currently holds an overall record of 133-66 (66.8 percent) at the helm of the program and guided JBU to its first-ever Sooner Athletic Conference regular season championship in 2012-13 with a team-record 14-2 mark in conference play. The Golden Eagles also set another program record last season with 28 wins while finishing the last 20 games of the campaign with a 17-3 record before falling to eventual National Champion Georgetown (Ky.) in the Round of 16 at the NAIA National Championships in Kansas City, Mo.

The 2009-10 season saw Sheehy's squad capture another program first as the Golden Eagles secured its first-ever SAC tournament championship. The squad went on to make a Round of 16 appearance in the NAIA National Championships, in addition to setting a then-school record 26 wins in a season.

With six seasons under his belt at JBU, Sheehy has accumulated three NAIA National Championships appearances, recording a 3-3 mark at the historic Municipal Auditorium. He has also won SAC Coach of the Year honors twice in the last three seasons.

Prior to coming to JBU, Sheehy spent two seasons as head men's basketball coach at Fresno Pacific (Calif.) from 2005-2007. During his first year, Sheehy took a program that had only one winning season in its previous eight years to a 15-13 record. Building on the team's turnaround, the Sunbirds advanced to postseason play for the first time since 2004 in his second season. In his two years at FPU, Sheehy accumulated a 28-29 overall record.

Before his stint at Fresno Pacific, Sheehy was an assistant coach at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, coaching at the NCAA I school for five years from 2000-2005. The Bobcats won 69 games over that span as Sheehy coached 10 players that went on to play professional basketball.

Prior to Texas State, Sheehy spent one season at NCAA II Texas A&M Commerce as a graduate assistant for the men's basketball program.

Sheehy graduated from John Brown in 1999, while playing four years under his father and legendary JBU coach, John Sheehy, garnering All-Conference accolades in his junior and senior years. He then went on to complete his Master of Education at Texas A&M Commerce in 2000.

Sheehy and his wife, Elisa, reside in Siloam Springs with their two sons, Cameron and Caden.
