Toledo names Campbell head football coach

Toledo University named Matt Campbell head football coach on Monday.

Campbell was named interim head coach last Friday after head coach Tim Beckman left to take the head coaching position at Illinois.

"We are very pleased that Matt Campbell has agreed to become the head football coach at the University of Toledo," said Toledo athletic director Mike O'Brien. "There is no doubt that Matt has done a terrific job in his three years as our offensive coordinator. The performance of our offense speaks for itself."

Campbell, 32, was the offensive coordinator for the past three seasons and his offense ranked eighth in the nation in scoring (42.3 per game) and yards (493.2 per game).

He is the 26th head football coach in the 91-year history of the program.
