Report: Michigan football hires Anthony Campanile to defensive staff

Michigan football has apparently gotten another coach. After hiring Josh Gattis from Alabama as their offensive coordinator yesterday, head coach Jim Harbaugh has brought on another coach to be under defensive coordinator Don Brown.

According to The Michigan Insider, Michigan will be hiring Boston College’s co-defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach Anthony Campanile and add him to the defensive coaching staff.

It is unknown what his role on the defense will be, but his experience at Boston College has been impressive for the past three years the Eagles have had a solid secondary.

Campanile has done a great job at getting players to the NFL. In 2016, cornerbacks Isaac Yiadom and Kamrin Moore were drafted, Yiadom in the third round and Moore in the sixth. In 2017, safety John Johnson was drafted in the third round. Three current Eagles, cornerback Hamp Cheevers, and safeties Will Harris and Lukas Denis are also expected to get drafted in April, adding to the list of players that have gotten to the next level under Campanile.

Campanile started his college coaching career at Rutgers, starting off as a defensive assistant in 2012-2013 before coaching the wide receivers and tight ends from 2013-2015 before arriving in Boston College in 2016, starting off as the defensive back coach for two years and getting upgraded to co-defensive coordinator in 2018.

Michigan lost their defensive line coach Greg Mattison and linebackers coach Al Washington to Ohio State last week, and are looking to fill the holes that they have left.
