Under his leadership for the past 16 seasons, his teams earned an overall record of 168-38, winning a 2009 state championship and finishing as state runner up in 2011, 2017, and 2018.
“We greatly appreciate Coach Rob Fitzpatrick for his service and look forward to his continued efforts in our athletic program,” said William Carroll, Head of School. “We are excited to have Coach Campbell heading up our football program and know that his experience and success will be a great asset. We believe he will continue the excitement and energy that Coach Fitzpatrick brought to our football program, and we look forward to having Coach Campbell at Westfield.”
