Kyle Campbell is in his sixth year of managing the Ole Miss Athletics Communications Department. He assumed the title of Assistant Athletics Director in May 2011 and was elevated to Associate A.D. in November 2015.
Among his duties are assisting in the overall media and public relations strategy for Rebel Athletics, supervising the communications staff, serving as the media contact for the football program and overseeing content for the school's internet operation. He also works closely with the local SEC Network team and coordinates talent.
In 2014, Campbell's staff was recognized by the Football Writers Association of America on its "Super 11" list, which honors 11 sports information departments deemed the best in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision during the 2013 season. It marked the first time for Ole Miss to earn the award, which began in 2009.
Over the course of his tenure at Ole Miss, Campbell has worked as the primary media contact for football, men's basketball, soccer, softball, men's and women's golf and rifle. Since first joining the department as an intern in August 1999, he has served as media director for countless regular-season and conference tournaments and coordinated the production of more than 30 publications.
Campbell held the additional title of Online Communications Director from August 2006 through April 2011, a period that saw exponential growth with the school's official athletics website, OleMissSports.com. Traffic jumped 117 percent in unique visitors from his first season on the job to 2009-10.
Including the site's 2012 overhaul, Campbell has served as project manager on five redesigns of OleMissSports.com and overseen the transition to two different web providers. He also expanded Ole Miss' new media efforts in 2009 with a social platform, which includes facebook, twitter and blog.
Before his arrival at Ole Miss, Campbell held the position of Assistant Sports Information Director at the University of Evansville for the 1998-99 season. With the Purple Aces, he worked as the primary media contact for nine varsity sports, including baseball.
A native of Fayette, Ala., where he was a radio personality and newspaper writer during his high school and college days, Campbell graduated from the University of Alabama in 1997 with a bachelor's degree in communication. He has also completed coursework toward a master's degree in journalism from Ole Miss.
While in Tuscaloosa, Campbell served as Assistant Sports Editor for the student newspaper, The Crimson White, and was a beat writer for the 1997 College World Series runner-up Tide baseball team. He also worked as a media relations volunteer at the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta and studied at Oxford University in England during the summer of 1997.
Upon his UA graduation, Campbell spent a year as an English teacher in the Czech Republic, tutoring elementary to advanced level students.
Campbell married the former Stevie Wood of Little Rock, Ark., in July 2009.
