Former All-American return specialist Anthony Weeden was recently added to the Campbell football coaching staff.
BUIES CREEK — Anthony Weeden has joined Campbell’s football staff as wide receivers coach.
Weeden comes to Buies Creek after four seasons at Dixie State University, where he also coached wide receivers for the Trailblazers.
In his final season at Dixie State, Weeden helped the Trailblazers to a pair of wins through the abbreviated 2021 spring campaign, including a 26-14 victory over No. 22 Tarleton State in the program’s Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) debut.
In 2019, Dixie State went 8-3 overall, marking the best season in the program’s 14-year NCAA Division II era.
Prior to Dixie State, Weeden returned for his second stint at Northwestern Oklahoma State in 2016 after spending a year at Missouri Southern State, where he was in charge of coaching the wide receivers for the Lions.
Weeden began his first stint at NOSU during the summer of 2012. Under Weeden’s watch, eight receivers caught 10 or more passes, and six of them recorded a touchdown. As a group, the receiving corps set new single-season school records for most yards and receptions.
Prior to his time at Northwestern, Weeden played and coached at Prairie View A&M. On the Prairie View staff, Weeden was a defensive assistant coach and offensive quality control coordinator.
In his playing days, Weeden was an All-American return specialist, starting wide receiver and team captain. He was part of three consecutive winning seasons and helped the program earn its first Southwestern Athletic Conference championship since 1964.
