Rob Clements rejoined the Puget Sound football coaching staff for the 2014, and he has coached the offensive line for the past three seasons.
Clements returns to Puget Sound after four years at Raymond High School, serving as head coach for the last three. He helped turn around his hometown program, leading the Gulls their first winning season in 10 years as an assistant and giving Raymond its first league title in 19 years. He won back-to-back league titles in 2012 and 2013, and his 2013 Gulls squad finished third in the state. Under Clements, Raymond’s offense averaged 300 rushing yards a game and led the conference in scoring during the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
Prior to joining the Gulls, Clements began his coaching career at Puget Sound. He coached the Logger running backs from 2006 to 2007 and took over responsibilities for the team’s linebackers and special teams in 2008 and 2009.
While coaching at Raymond HS, Clements taught in the district’s elementary school. He also was the throws coach for Raymond High’s track and field squads.
Before coaching at Puget Sound, Clements competed for the Loggers from 2001 to 2005. He was a four-year starter on the offensive line, earning All-NWC honors his junior and senior seasons. He graduated with his bachelors degree in 2006 and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree in 2009.
Clements lives in Tacoma with his wife Mary (’09) and two daughters, Cadence and Rory.
