For the first time since following Jimmy Johnson from the University of Miami to the Dallas Cowboys in 1989, former Cowboys’ secondary coach will head back to the college game in order to take over as defensive coordinator of the University of Kansas, ESPN Dallas reports.
It was announced earlier this week that Campo would not be brought back to Dallas in 2012, after a disappointing campaign from Campo’s secondary in the 2011 season. The Cowboys announced the addition of Campo’s replacement, Jerome Henderson, on Thursday.
Campo’s last stint with Dallas (at least to this point) began in 2008, six years after being fired as head coach of the team, ending his first stint. Now, he goes to a Jayhawks team desperate to improve on a 2011 season that saw a 2-10 record, and a defense that was 120th in the nation in terms of points allowed.
