The prospect of this happening has been heavily rumored for months, but it's finally official today. Former Rutgers walk-on Anthony Campanile is returning to the program officially as a (presumably offensive) graduate assistant, according the The Star-Ledger's Mike Vorkunov.
Make no mistake about it, Campanile is considered a rising star in the coaching profession. The way I see it, you give him two years to get his feet wet while he gets a graduate degree. Then he takes over the WR coaching job, and immediately turns into a monster recruiting the North Jersey parochial schools (Anthony is coming from Don Bosco, his brother Nunzio is the head coach at Bergen Catholic, and his father used to coach at Paramus Catholic) along the lines of a Jeff Hafley. Don't discount his coaching abilities either, as Bosco was an offensive juggernaut. They had a big talent edge over most teams, but that doesn't explain, say, the win over St. Peter's Prep.
