The Blade is reporting that the 35-year-old Campbell has agreed to a deal, as well. Terms of his new contract have not officially been announced yet, as the Cyclones have not confirmed the hire.
Campbell was 35-15 during his tenure with Toledo. This season, the team went 9-2, his best season at the school.
He had three nine-win seasons, including two in the past two-seasons. He also had a 9-4 record in 2012, which was his first full-season with the school.
Campbell, who was the team’s interim head coach during its 2011 win in the Military Bowl, is 2-1 in bowl games. He won’t be there to coach the Rockets in its bowl game this season.
He takes over a program that struggled under former head coach Paul Rhoads. They fired him last weekend with the team having a 3-8 record.
Roads was 32-55 during his tenure with the Cyclones. In the past three seasons, the team hasn’t won more than three games.
They won seven games, which was his only season above .500 in 2009. Then, in 2011 and 2012, the team went 6-7.
Toledo Athletic Director Mike O’Brien wanted to give Campbell the highest-paid contract in MAC, but he was only making $495,000. With the Cyclones, it wouldn’t be surpassing if he made more than a million per year.
