New Head Pro at Curry College Location - Chris Campbell from Boston College
Chris Campbell is entering his first year at the helm of the Boston College Eagles volleyball program. Campbell comes to the Heights from a successful run as the Associate Head Coach at Auburn where he served as the recruiting coordinator and position coach for the middle blockers he also added defensive coordinator to his areas of responsibility.
In his first full recruiting class, Campbell pulled in the nation's No. 26 recruiting class, according to PrepVolleyball.com. The class included the No. 34 and No. 93-ranked seniors in the nation as well as Sarah Bullock, who was named to the 2009 Southeastern Conference All-Freshman team at the conclusion of the 2009 season.
As defensive coordinator Campbell was responsible for designing and implementing the Tigers defensive system and the defensive game plans for success in the ever-tough SEC. The results speak for themselves. In just one season Auburn rose from ninth to fifth in the SEC in opponent hitting percentage, and from 11th to seventh in blocks.
As a player, Campbell competed in the Canadian Division I level for McGill University and the University of British Columbia (UBC) where he was a team captain and starter at both schools. During his final season at UBC the team was ranked as high as 7th in the nation.
