New UCA football coach Steve Campbell answers a question during his introductory ceremony Friday afternoon. Campbell was officially announced Thursday.

The University of Central Arkansas welcomed Steve Campbell as its next head football coach in a ceremony Friday afternoon.

The introduction came less than a week after Clint Conque resigned to take the same position at Stephen F. Austin.

Campbell comes to UCA from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College where he won 87 games, and a NJCAA national championship in 2007.

Campbell said great university leadership — including President Tom Courtway and athletic director Brad Teague — and the city of Conway helped him in his decision to accept UCA’s offer.

In addition to head coaching experience at MGCCC, Campbell went 27-8, including a national championship in 2000, at Delta State, a Division II school. Campbell was named AFCA National Coach of the Year in 2001.

Campbell said the formulation of his staff is still in progress, but should begin to take shape over the next few days.

Look for more coverage of Campbell’s introductory ceremony later in the afternoon and in Saturday’s print edition of the Log Cabin Democrat.
