Wide Receivers Coach
Erik Campbell was the receivers coach at the University of Iowa from 2008 to 2012. He also coached tight ends in his first two years at Iowa.
In 2010 under his expertise, two Iowa wide receivers, Derrell Johnson-Koulianos (who attended Alouettes training camp in 2012) and Marvin McNutt were both selected for All-Big Ten honours.
He joined the Iowa staff after serving as an assistant head coach and receivers coach with the Michigan Wolverines for 13 seasons from 1995 to 2007. During his tenure at Michigan, Campbell groomed some of the school’s top wide receivers including future NFL first-round picks: Braylon Edwards, David Terrell and Charles Woodson, with the latter also claiming the Heisman Trophy. Campbell also oversaw the development of Amani Toomer, a second-round draft pick of the New York Giants (1996); Jason Avant, a fourth-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles (2006); Steve Breaston, a fifth-round selection of the Arizona Cardinals (2007).
His coaching background also landed him as the running back coach at the University of Syracuse in 1994 and at Ball State University from 1991 to 1993. In 1989-1990, he coached the running backs at the U.S. Naval Academy.
