For new Rutgers’ defensive end coach, Julian Campenni, the last few weeks have been full of change. After five years at Bowling Green, he decided to join Greg Schiano in Piscataway. While Campenno is preparing for a new chapter in his career, he made an unforgettable impact at Bowling Green.
During his time with the Falcons, Campenni was a defensive line coach. Under his leadership, the Falcons led the country with 28 turnovers in 2023 and ranked No. 25 in total defense. Over the last two seasons, they recorded 71 sacks, the most over a two-year span in program history.
While it was a team effort, Campenni was a big part of the Falcon’s success. On Thursday, he posted a thank you message to everyone at Bowling Green who impacted his time there.
An integral part of the Bowling Green staff under head coach Scott Loeffler, the now Rutgers defensive line coach was one of the top positional coaches in the MAC.
On Thursday, Campenni posted a thank you on social media to the Bowling Green community. He started his message off by giving thanks “first and foremost, to Coach Loeffler for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to come with him to BG.”
He ended his message by thanking the players on the roster, putting a hashtag of “#FTC.” The letters are part of the Rutgers mantra of Faith, Trust, CHOP.
Greg Schiano on the hiring of defensive lines coach Colin Ferrell and defensive ends coach Julian Campenni:
“Colin and Julian are excellent football coaches and great recruiters. Their expertise will play an important role in the progression of our defense and defensive line.”
