Evans is in charge of Leeds at the moment, but his current contract with the West Yorkshire outfit runs out at the end of next month and no new deal is in place.
"I don’t know Darrell Clarke," Evans told BBC Radio Leeds when asked about Clarke. "I have had a few conversations with him in the past.
"He got relegated to the Conference, but he has brought a good football club back to League One with two consecutive promotions.
"And I have been there in the Conferences and in Leagues One and Two, and it is very difficult. It is a tough job. He has managed to get them over the line in the last few seconds of the last game."
Clarke is a very good young manager who got Rovers promoted from League Two to League One at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
Many Leeds fans will suggest that the Englishman does not have the experience to take charge of the Whites.
However, the achievements of Aitor Karanka at Middlesbrough and Carlos Carvalhal at Sheffield Wednesday suggest that a manager can be successful in the Championship even without experience of the league if he is genuinely good.
Leeds chairman Massimo Cellino, though, needs to be very careful with who he appoints the team’s head coach next season.
