Campbell’s progression into coaching followed, and after working with youth and semi-professional players in England, Campbell moved to the United States in 1993 and joined the coaching ranks in Georgia. He joined the Gwinnett Soccer Association (GSA) and at that time became the third full time Director of Coaching in Georgia. Campbell’s philosophy is simple: player development. He believes that young players must be taught the correct techniques and encouraged to use them in both practices and games.

The 92s were State Cup winners in 2007 and 2009, were 2009 Regional Champions and finished 4th in the US Youth Soccer National Championships that same year. The 93s are five-time State Cup winners and were crowned R3PL Champions in both 2007 and 2009. In 2009 the 93s were Regional Finalists (losing 0-2 in the final match). The 95s were 2008 State Cup winners and 2009 R3PL finalists. In the summer of 2008 Campbell was invited to be a Region Staff coach and in 2009 was named the assistant coach of the U-19 Region team. The team beat the Mexican U-20 National team 2-0 in a exhibition game. Later in the year he was the head coach of the U-19 Region team that attended the Inter-Regional National Camp where the girls finished 2-0-1. Campbell has served as the the Assistant Coach to the Women’s W-League Atlanta Silverbacks for the past 2 years. Each year, this team has been Conference Champions advancing to the playoffs.
