College football

UD announces passing game coordinator: Erik Campbell, a former University of Michigan standout player who has spent 28 seasons coaching at the highest level of college football, including 14 years at his alma mater, has been named passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach for the University of Delaware football program

Campbell replaces Fontel Mines, who had served on Rocco’s new staff since January. In addition to the hiring of Campbell, Rocco also announced that current UD tight ends coach Bill Polin will add Mines’ recruiting coordinator responsibilities to his duties on the Delaware staff.

Campbell most recently served one season as wide receivers coach at the University of Connecticut in 2016. He began his coaching career as running backs coach for six seasons at Navy, Ball State, and Syracuse between 1989-94 before returning to his alma mater to coach wide receivers for 13 seasons between 1995 and 2007 under head coach Lloyd Carr. He also held the title of assistant head coach at Michigan in 2003-07.

Campbell moved on to the University of Iowa where he coached wide receivers and tight ends for five seasons in 2008-12 under head coach Kirk Ferentz. Campbell spent two seasons as wide receivers coach for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League in 2013-14, leading the squad to the playoffs both years and the Eastern Conference finals in 2014. He returned to the college ranks – and Michigan – as recruiting coordinator and assistant director of operations in 2015 for head coach Jim Harbaugh before spending this most recent season as wide receivers coach at UConn for head coach Bob Diaco.

Among his coaching highlights have been helping to lead Michigan to the 1997 national championship; coaching three All-Americans at Michigan (David Terrell, Marquise Walker and Braylon Edwards) and 18 All-Big Ten selections overall; coaching a 1,000-yard receiver an NCAA-record eight straight seasons (1998-2005); mentoring two of the most successful receivers in Big Ten history (Marin McNutt at Iowa and Edwards at Michigan); coaching the Big 10’s all-time career punt return leader Steve Breaston (1,599 yards and 12.6 average) at Michigan; and producing numerous National Football League Draft picks, including first round pick and 1997 Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson and No. 3 overall pick Edwards in 2005.
