Mark Campbell is now in his eighth season as the head coach of the Lady Bulldogs. Campbell is coming of back-to-back NAIA National Championship seasons for the first time in school history. For Union, this marked their third NAIA National Championship as the Lady Bulldog basketball team also captured the 1998 title. Campbell earned NAIA Coach of the Year honors for the second straight season.

Campbell's 2005-06 season also marked a year for more individual accomplishments as he passed the 200-win mark for his career. In his seven seasons, Campbell has 226 wins to just 36 losses (86.3 percent). He also moved into second place on the all-time Union coaching wins list (current list: Blackstock-509, Campbell-226, Birmingham-198).

In his career as Union’s head coach, Campbell’s teams have won, two NAIA National Title (2005, 2006), five conference regular season titles, and have won four conference tournament titles. In the 2002-03 season, he led Union to their best regular season in school history with 30 wins before the post season tournaments. He has reached the 35-win plateau twice in his career, which ties the school record for wins in a season.

Campbell spent five seasons as a player for the Lipscomb Bison basketball team and graduated from Lipscomb University in 1994 with a Bachelor of Arts degree and from Union University in 1996 with a Master of Education.

After red-shirting his freshman season at Lipscomb, Campbell went on to excel in the basketball arena. Campbell currently ranks 12th in all-time scoring at Lipscomb with 1,509 prints. The 724 assists he accumulated during his career places him in the top five at David Lipscomb for career assists. Campbell helped guide the Bisons to five national tournament appearances, a 129-19 four-year record, and a national record of 41 wins in a season.

After college, Campbell joined Union’s men’s basketball coaching staff as the graduate assistant in 1994 and then became the full time assistant coach in 1996. He worked under the guidance of fellow Lipscomb graduate and current Union men’s head coach Ralph Turner for five seasons until being named the new women’s basketball coach in 1999.

Over the past seven seasons as Union’s head coach, Campbell has been named as the TranSouth Coach of the Year twice (2001, 2002), NAIA Coach of the Year twice (2005, 2006), NAIA WBCA Coach of the Year once (2004), and has an overall record coaching record of 226-36 (.863). Campbell serves nationally on the NAIA All-American Committee and is the secretary for the NAIA. He is also is the national rater for the TranSouth Conference.

During his time as a head coach for the Union University Lady Bulldogs, he has proven to be much more that a great basketball coach. "I believe my responsiblity to each of my players is to have a vision for who they can be in every area of life, and communicate it to them in a way that challanges them to pursue it."

Mark Campbell is married to the former Molly Graves of Jackson. They are the proud parents of their son Gray, born on July 10, 2002 and daughter Ella, born on April 9, 2004.
