Matt Campbell (front), formerly the head football coach at the University of Toledo, was introduced as the Cyclones' head football coach during a Monday media event. In introducing Campbell, athletics director Jamie Pollard identified five qualities that convinced him Campbell was a good fit for the Iowa State job: head coaching experience, student athlete recruiting success, high character, winning tradition (as both player and coach) and Campbell's genuine desire to lead the program. Campbell has a six-year contract.
