Matt Campbell - Offensive Coordinator/Offensive Line Coach
Matt Campbell is in his first seasons as the Rockets’ offensive coordinator/offensive line coach.
Campbell served as an assistant coach at Bowling Green for the past three seasons, two as the offensive line coach (2006-07) and last year as the offensive line coach/running game coordinator. The Falcons participated in the GMAC Bowl in the 2007 season.
"Matt Campbell is a coach’s son who has grown up around football all his life," said Beckman. "In my opinion, he’s the best recruiter in the Mid-American Conference. But his knowledge of the offensive schemes we want to run here was the first reason I offered him the position."
Before joining the Falcon staff, Campbell spent two years as the offensive coordinator/offensive line coach at Mount Union. Campbell began his career as the offensive graduate assistant for Bowling Green in 2003 and 2004, earning his master’s degree in education administration at BGSU. He worked with the tight ends for two nationally ranked teams that won the 2003 Motor City Bowl and 2004 GMAC Bowl.
Campbell, a 2002 graduate of Mount Union, was a member of five national championship teams as a coach and player for the Purple Raiders. He was a two-time first-team All-American and was voted as the Ohio Athletic Conference’s Best Defensive Lineman in 2001 and 2002. He was a vital member of three MUC teams which won national titles (2000, 2001 and 2002). During his career at Mount Union, he had 207 tackles, 49 for a loss and 22 sacks. Campbell also excelled in the classroom, earning CoSIDA Academic All-America honors. In his final two years of his stay at Mount Union, Campbell coached the offensive line of a team that won back-to-back national titles.
