After losing Tim Beckman to Illinois, the Toledo Rockets have been in search of a replacement head coach for this year's Military Bowl game against Air Force. Monday, they found their man. Brian Nowicki and others are reporting that the Rockets have called a 7 p.m. press conference to name Matt Campbell as the new Toledo football head coach:
@briannowicki Brian Nowicki 7pm press conference tonight to name permanent head coach at Toledo. As I've been saying, expect Matt Campbell to be named
Campbell took over as the offensive coordinator in 2009 after three seasons at Bowling Green. He is a 2002 graduate of Division III Mount Union, where he was part of five national championship teams at that level. His offense has developed one of the most prolific wide receivers in college football in Eric Page. Page has had three straight seasons of at least 1,100 yards receiving and 25 career touchdowns. He also has over 300 career receptions.
