    Dave Campo Kansas's new Defensive Coordinator

    LAWRENCE, Kan. - Dave Campo, a veteran coach who has experienced major success at every level of the game, was named defensive coordinator at the University of Kansas Friday. Campo will also coach the defensive backs as a member of first-year KU head coach Charlie Weis' staff.
    Campo, who spent the first 18 years of his coaching career in the collegiate ranks, was the secondary coach on Jimmy Johnson's University of Miami staff for two seasons (1987-88). During his two seasons in Miami, the Hurricanes posted a 23-1 overall record and won the 1987 National Championship. Additionally, safety Bennie Blades was the 1987 Jim Thorpe Award winner before being selected with the third pick in the NFL draft by the Detroit Lions.
    A standout defensive backs coach, Campo then began his NFL coaching career as he was hired by Dallas as an original member of Johnson's first Cowboys staff in 1989. He has 23 years of coaching experience in the NFL with 18 of those coming with the Cowboys. He has also held assistant coaching positions with the Cleveland Browns and Jacksonville Jaguars.
    Campo played a key role in the development of Dallas teams that made eight playoff trips, won six division titles and claimed three Super Bowl titles. He began his career in Dallas coaching the secondary (1989-94) and then was promoted to defensive coordinator (1995-99) before working his way up to the head coaching position for the Cowboys, a post he held for three seasons from 2000 to 2002.
    During his tenure in Dallas, he helped the team win consecutive Super Bowl championships in 1992 and 1993 and again in 1995.
    In four of the five years that Campo directed the Dallas defense as coordinator, the Cowboys finished the year among the NFL's top-10 units, including a pair of top-three finishes. As the coordinator of the Cowboys defense, Campo helped guide the careers of some of the 1990s most dynamic defensive players - including Pro Bowlers Charles Haley, Darren Woodson, Deion Sanders, Tony Tolbert, Leon Lett, Russell Maryland and Dexter Coakley.





    Prior to becoming defensive coordinator in 1995, Campo directed a secondary that had grown into one of the team's most productive units. His 1994 squad led the NFL in pass defense and coached strong safety Darren Woodson to All-Pro honors in 1995.
    Most recently, Campo returned to the Cowboys where he spent the past four seasons (2008-11) working with the secondary. During that time he coached two players, Terence Newman and Mike Jenkins, to Pro Bowl appearances.
    Prior to moving back to Dallas, Campo spent three seasons as the secondary coach and assistant head coach for Jack Del Rio's defense in Jacksonville. In each of his three years in Jacksonville, Campo's secondary either set - or exceeded - club records for interceptions.
    In his final season with the Jags, Campo helped guide the club to an 11-5 record and a wildcard berth in the playoffs. Jacksonville defeated Pittsburgh in an opening round road win before bowing out to the eventual undefeated AFC Champion Patriots in Foxborough. Under Campo, Rashean Mathis became the first Jaguars cornerback to be voted to the Pro Bowl as he tied for third in the NFL with a team-record eight interceptions in 2006.
    Prior to joining the Jaguars, Campo served as the defensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns for two seasons (2003-2004). Under his guidance the 2003 Browns defense finished with the club's best overall performance in 10 seasons.
    Campo began his coaching career at his alma mater, Central Connecticut State, where he spent the 1971-72 seasons. He then moved to the University of Albany (1973), Bridgeport (1974), the University of Pittsburgh (1975), Washington State (1976), Boise State (1977-79), Oregon State (1980), Weber State (1981-82), Iowa State (1983) and Syracuse (1984-86). In addition to starring at defensive back in college, Campo twice earned All-East honors at shortstop at Central Connecticut State.
    Campo and his wife, Kay, have six children: Angie, Eric, Beckie, Tommy, Shelbie and Michael.

    Iowa State 1983! I vaguely remember him @ ISU. He was smart enough to bail on Jim Criner after one season.

    We saw what the talent challenged Dallas secondary did under his direction. Have a feeling KU will be the same way for awhile.

    He's been alot of places and has a ton of experience but the quote above is laughable. Helped guide the careers? Okay. If by staying out of their way, maybe.
