Morehouse College Hires New Athletic DirectorDate Released: March 14, 2020
Campbell will begin his new role on July 1. He will replace the Interim Athletics Director Javarro Edwards ’92, a successful businessman, community leader, and member of the 1991 SIAC championship-winning Maroon Tigers football team. Javarro was appointed Interim AD in July 2019.
"Campbell has spent his career focused on putting students first in his management decisions," said David A. Thomas, President of Morehouse College. "He has worked to expand scholarship opportunities and boost academic achievement for athletes, renovate sports facilities, and build teams into champions."
In his former role at West Oregon University (WOU), Campbell managed a $5.1 million budget and a program with 13 sports, 300 student athletes, and 55 employees. Setting the bar high for his staff and student athletes at WOU, yielded positive results. More than 300 student athletes maintained at least a 3.0 grade point average during his tenure. And in 2019-20, the athletics department reported a record year in fundraising that included increasing the scholarship level for student athletes by $200,000.
“This position is about managing people, managing resources and providing excellent services to student athletes, alums, and fans," Campbell said. "I will work diligently to provide student-athletes with great academic and athletic experiences."
