Scott Rabalais of The Advocate reports that LSU Gymnastics coach Jay Clark will remain in Baton Rouge after being pursued by his Georgia

Clark is a graduate of Georgia and spent 15+ years coaching the Bulldogs:

Coaching career (HC unless noted)
1990-1996 Georgia (Asst)
1998-2003 Georgia (Asst)
2004-2008 Georgia (AHC)
2009-2012 Georgia
2013-2019 LSU (AHC)
2020-present LSU

The LSU gymnastics coaching staff will remain intact after the University of Georgia targeted Jay Clark and his assistants to return to his former school in the wake of the Tigers’ first national championship, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Raises and new contracts are in store for Clark and assistants Garrett Griffeth, Courtney McCool Griffeth and Ashleigh Gnat, sources said. Details have not been announced.

According to a report from the Athens (Georgia) Banner-Herald, Clark was at the top of Georgia’s list to replace former Gym Dogs great Courtney Kupets Carter, who was fired Friday after seven seasons. The Griffeths were reportedly also on Georgia’s list of top candidates, either to come with Clark as assistant coaches or to become co-head coaches should Clark turn down the job.

He’s a relatively young man & that’s good news for LSU gymnastics.
I hope he doesn’t fall into a trap like Johnson. Maybe I’ll call it the O curse

I think it is a case of them having left for a reason.
