Clint Conque (born July 14, 1961) is an American college football coach and former player. He was the head football coach at Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA), a position he assumed in December 2013 until resigning on August 6, 2018. Conque previously served in the same capacity at the University of Central Arkansas (UCA) from 2000 to 2013, compiling a record of 105 wins and 59 losses.
In his first season at SFA, Conque helped guide the Lumberjacks to an 8-5 record, a five-win improvement from the 3-9 mark in 2013. Conque was 5-3 in Southland Conference games, including wins over sixth-ranked McNeese State and eighth-ranked Southeastern Louisiana, finishing tied for third. Conque was named the SLC Coach of the Year, leading the Lumberjacks to the FCS playoffs for the first time since 2010. He also helped mentor senior Gus Johnson to a record-setting year as Johnson was named the SLC Player of the Year and finished ninth in the Walter Payton Award voting. Zach Conque was named the SLC 2014 Newcomer of the Year.
On June 18, 2018, Conque was suspended indefinitely as the head coach at Stephen F. Austin State University. According to the university statement, "Stephen F. Austin State University has suspended head football coach Clint Conque pending an investigation into alleged violations of university policy. The investigation is expected to take several weeks." Jeff Byrd was named interim head coach.
Conque announced his resignation on August 6, stating “Although I have remained confident in the ongoing investigation into the potential violation of university policy, as a family of faith and out of respect to my profession, I do not want this situation to be a further distraction to the 2018 football team and season."
