Nunzio Campanile will be sticking around Rutgers a little bit longer.
TheKnightReport.com reported recently that Campanile and Rutgers have come to an agreement on a contract extension, keeping the former interim head coach on Greg Schiano’s staff. Campanile signed a two-year contract extension, which will keep him in Piscataway through the 2022 season.
Per the report, Campanile is scheduled to make $300,000 each of the next two seasons. That’s a $70,000 pay bump from the $230,000 he was previously receiving.
Campanile started out as the running backs coach at Rutgers in 2018, and then shifted to coaching tight ends. Midway through the season, Rutgers Athletic Director Pat Hobbs fired head coach Chris Ash and offensive coordinator John McNulty, and Campanile took over both roles on an interim basis.
Now, Campanile is back to coaching tight ends on the Scarlet Knights staff under Schiano.
