Clement coached at Campbellsville University for the last seven years, one year as a graduate assistant coach and six years as an assistant coach and head JV coach.
“I am extremely excited to be returning home,” Clement said. “The Bowling Green/Warren County area continues to grow and has much to offer. Sports tourism brings a positive economic impact to our community; I look forward to promoting our community as a premier destination to sporting event planners.”
