MS Gulf Coast head coach Steve Campbell turns down job offer at Louisiana-Lafayette

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - At a news conference Monday morning Hudspeth met the media and officially takes over the head coaching reins in Lafayette.  Before spending two years at Mississippi State, Hudspeth coached seven seasons at North Alabama.  In 2000 he served as offensive coordinator at Delta State under head coach Steve Campbell. That's the year Campbell led Delta State to the Division Two National Championship.

Following the Monday news conference, Hudspeth confirmed that he had hired Steve Campbell.

"That is true," Hudspeth said.  "Him and I won a National Championship together at Delta State University and he won a National Championship at Mississippi Gulf Coast."  He added, "Campbell is the most respected offensive line coach in the Southeast United States at any level.  He's going to be our run game coordinator and assistant head coach."

However late Monday evening Gulf Coast athletic director Ladd Taylor said that Campbell turned down the Louisiana-Lafayette job offer and will remain in Perkinston.

 In seven seasons at Gulf Coast, Campbell has guided the Bulldogs to 60 wins and 16 losses, including a victory in the 2010 Mississippi Bowl on December 5th over Grand Rapids, Michigan. This year's Gulf Coast team posted 10 wins and 2 defeats and ended the season ranked number three in the nation.

His 2007 Bulldogs captured the Junior College National Championship, running off 12 wins and no losses and was named Co-national Coach of the Year.
