Matt Campbell has evolved the Iowa State Cyclones from a football doormat to a real contending program. 

Every year, Iowa State’s Big 12 football odds have to be considered. The Cyclones even flirted with the college football championship odds market in 2020. 

But how long did it actually take Campbell to build Iowa State into a real midwestern staple? We’ve got the answer.

When Did Matt Campbell Start Coaching at Iowa State?

Matt Campbell became the head coach of Iowa State football on November 29, 2015. He replaced Paul Rhoads, who was fired once the Cyclones dropped to 3-8. 

What’s Matt Campbell’s Record at Iowa State?

Campbell has compiled a 46-42 record as the head coach of Iowa State football. That includes five straight seasons with seven wins or more from 2017-21. 

Who’s the Winningest Coach in Iowa State Football History?

Dan McCarney won 56 games as Iowa State head coach, but he did it in a much longer timespan than Campbell. He coached in Ames from 1995-2006 and won less than 40% of his games. 

Campbell is just a couple of winning seasons away from passing McCarney in gross wins.
