Cardinal Newman High School recently announced the appointment of Reilly Campbell as the school’s new athletic director. Campbell brings varied experiences in school athletics and education from Catholic and college preparatory schools and will also serve as head boys basketball coach.
Campbell joins Cardinal Newman from the Atlanta International School in Georgia, where he has served as athletic director since 2019. Before that, Campbell was athletic director and head basketball coach at Notre Dame Academy in Duluth, Georgia. He has spent more than a decade coaching athletics and has taught middle through high school grades, including many AP courses.
“Reilly’s energy and passion for athletics and developing young people ‘boy, mind and spirit’ made him an ideal candidate,” President Brother Thomas Zoppo said. “He embodies the core values of Cardinal Newman and the athletic department, and I am confident he will make an instant connection with our student-athletes and serve as an exemplary role model for them.”
Campbell is originally from Jacksonville, and he earned a bachelor’s degree in sports management from Florida State University and a master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of New England.
“I am excited to have been given the opportunity to lead the athletic department at Cardinal Newman High School, as well as the boys basketball team,” Campbell said. “The Cardinal Newman athletic program has a rich history that I am honored to be part of. I look forward to building on the past and helping to create new legacies.”
