Anthony Campanile (born 1982) is an American football coach who currently works as the Tight Ends coach for the Rutgers University football team.[1] Campanile was promoted in 2013 after joining the Rutgers staff in the summer of 2012 as a Defensive Assistant.[2]

Anthony Campanile is in his third season on staff and second as a full-time assistant coach. In 2013, he helped mentor tight end, Tyler Kroft to SI.com Honorable Mention All-American and First Team All-American Athletic Conference. Kroft led the team in receiving yards (573) and receptions (43). Kroft was the only Scarlet Knight to record a reception in all 13 games and earned John Mackey National Tight End of the Week after racking up six catches, 133 yards and a touchdown versus Arkansas.

As a defensive assistant in 2012, Campanile helped coach a unit that finished fourth in the nation in scoring defense (14.15 points allowed/game), tied for ninth in turnovers gained (32) and 10th in total defense (311.62 yards allowed/game).

The former Scarlet Knight Safety and Linebacker (2001-2004) previously served as Offensive Coordinator for the high school powerhouse, Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, NJ, leading the Ironmen to NJSIAA Group IV State Championships in 2010 and 2011. Don Bosco’s 2011 squad compiled an 11-0 record and earned a No. 1 national ranking in several polls, including USA Today.

Campanile started his coaching career as a Student Assistant Coach for Rutgers in 2005. He then went on to Fair Lawn High School in Fair Lawn, NJ, for one season. Campanile began as Linebacker coach at Don Bosco Prep in 2007 before assuming Offensive Coordinator duties in 2010 and 2011.[3]
