South Alabama and Steve Campbell part ways

South Alabama is expected to move on from head coach Steve Campbell, Adam Rittenberg tweets this afternoon.

Campbell is in his third year leading the program and is 9-26 overall. In his first tow years he went 3-9 and 2-10 respectively. He is 4-7 this season.

Prior to taking the head coaching job at USA, Campbell had a successful run as the head coach at Central Arkansas where he went 20-5 over his last two seasons in 2016 and 2017 with second round exits in the FCS playoffs. He also spent three seasons (1999 - 2001) at Delta State (D-II - MS) where he captured the Division II National Title in 2000.

Rittenberg adds that an announcement from South Alabama is likely to happen later today.

The move would mark the fifth FBS head coaching change, joining South Carolina, Southern Miss, Utah State, and Vandebilt. Keep track of all the head coaching changes in the NFL and all levels of college football here.
