MOBILE, Ala. - UCA's head coach, Steve Campbell, has been named the head football coach at the University of South Alabama according to this press release.
Campbell will be the second head coach in the program's 10-year history. He will be replacing Joey Jones.
"I was born and raised in this area, just down the road outside of Pensacola, and have always felt that if South Alabama started football it would be a gold mine, a place where the sky is the limit and you can definitely compete for championships at the highest level," said Campbell. "Coach Jones did a terrific job of getting the program started and laying a tremendous foundation. This is an opportunity to get back home and, more than that, to take what Joey has started and raise it to the next level and win some championships."
Campbell served UCA for four years, guiding the Bears to a 33-15 mark, including a record of 24-3 in the Southland Conference.
In 19 seasons as a head coach, the 2014 NJCAA Hall of Fame inductee has never guided a team that finished with a losing record.
