With Signing Day approaching, Rutgers head coach Chris Ash is set to bolster his recruiting presence in the Scarlet Knights’ home state.
According to Sam Hellman of Scarlet Report, Nunzio Campanile will join the Rutgers staff as running backs coach. Campanile is the head coach Bergen Catholic High School in Oradell. Bergen won the 2017 state championship in New Jersey. Campanile’s brother, Anthony, previously coached at Rutgers and is now the defensive backs coach at Boston College.
Due to the NCAA’s new individual associated with a prospect rule, Campanile would have to be hired to Rutgers’s on-the-field coaching staff or the Knights could not recruit Bergen Catholic for two years. He is expected to bolster Rutgers’s recruiting efforts in north Jersey.
With Campanile’s addition, Lester Erb is expected to move to wide receivers coach. Existing wide receivers coach Jafar Williams left the staff last week to coach running backs at Maryland.
