Wide Receivers Coach
2014 - Campbell is entering his second season with the Alouettes as the Alouettes’ receivers coach. In 2013, he saw S.J. Green voted as a unanimous pick on the CFL All-Star team after finishing second in the CFL for total receiving yards (1,197) and first in receiving touchdowns (13). Campbell also helped rookie receiver Duron Carter amass 909 receiving yards and score five touchdowns in just 11 games.
Campbell spent the previous five seasons as wide receiver coach at the University of Iowa. He also coached the tight ends in his first two years at Iowa beginning in 2008. 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.
At Iowa, he coached Derrell Johnson-Koulianos (who participated in the Alouettes 2012 training camp) as well as Marvin McNutt, the school’s all- time leading receiver who was eventually drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2012 NFL Draft.
During his tenure at Michigan, the 47-year-old 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 Hesiman Trophy. He 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 Syracuse University 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.
