Jamie Campbell Named Women's Tennis Coach at UTEP

Jamie Campbell has been named women's tennis coach at UTEP, Director of Athletics Bob Stull announced on Monday. Her first day at UTEP will be Aug. 1.

"Jamie is an excellent fit for us," Stull said. "She has been a successful coach at the Division I level. We believe she will be an excellent leader who will relate well to our student-athletes."

"I greatly appreciate the opportunity I've been given to work for the UTEP athletics department," Campbell said. "The staff seems dynamic and I look forward to meeting and working with the women's tennis team."

Campbell was the head coach at Binghamton University in Binghamton, N.Y. for the last five years. She compiled a 55-53 dual match record, including 28-19 over the last two seasons.

Her 2002-03 Bearcats finished 16-8 and took second place at the America East Conference Championship. Binghamton set school records for victories and consecutive wins (13). Campbell was named the America East Conference Coach of the Year. Five of her players earned All-Conference recognition.

Campbell took over a Division II program at Binghamton and eased its transition into Division I. The Bearcats captured back-to-back New England Collegiate Conference titles in her first two years as head coach before making the move to Division I for the 2001-02 campaign.

Campbell was the 2000 NECC Coach of the Year. Binghamton had the NECC's Outstanding Doubles Team in 1999 and 2000, and the league's Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year in 2000.

Campbell previously was an assistant coach at Guilford College (one year) and James Madison University (two years).

A native of Lexington, Ky., Campbell graduated from Guilford College in 1995 with a bachelor's degree in sports medicine. She was the Quakers' team captain and top singles player for three years.
