Tyson Veidt joins Campbell’s staff as linebackers coach

logo_iowa_state_cyclonesAMES, Iowa – Tyson Veidt will join Iowa State’s football staff as linebackers coach after spending the last two seasons on Iowa State head football coach Matt Campbell’s staff at Toledo.

“Tyson is a tireless recruiter and a great developer of relationships,” Campbell said. “He did a great job coaching our linebackers at Toledo and will do the same here at Iowa State.”

Veidt (pronounced “VITE”) was the linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator at UT in 2014-15.

“I am super excited to be a part of the Cyclone family with Coach Campbell,” Veidt said. “You certainly win with people, and Coach Campbell knows the importance of that. My family and I appreciate the opportunity and are ecstatic to get everyone to Ames.”

In 2015, linebacker Chase Murdock led the Rockets in the 12-game regular-season with 78 tackles and posted 7.5 TFL, as UT won nine games and earned a bowl bid. The Rockets ranked No. 11 nationally in rushing defense, holding opponents to a mere 115.5 yards per game on the ground.
In his first season at UT in 2014, Veidt mentored seniors Junior Sylvestre and Ray Bush, who were the centerpiece of a defense that led the MAC in rushing defense with116.2 yards allowed per game. Sylvestre earned first-team All-MAC honors.
Veidt formerly served as the head coach at Bluffton University from 2008-13. He made great strides in his six seasons at Bluffton. He rebuilt a program that finished with a 1-9 record in 2007 and led it to a 5-5 mark in 2011 and 6-4 record in 2012, including 5-3 ledgers in league play both seasons. The Beavers broke or established 40 school records during this time. Veidt also directed Bluffton to four straight wins over rival Defiance College. The Beavers placed a record number of student-athletes on the all-conference team during Veidt’s tenure.
Veidt’s teams excelled in the classroom, as well. The Bluffton football team recorded the highest GPA in school history, as well as placing a record number of football players on the Dean’s List. Senior offensive lineman Thomas Gingrich was named CoSIDA Academic All-America in 2012, the first football player in Bluffton history to receive that honor.
Veidt attended Muskingum College where he was a two-year starter on the football team, earning three letters from 1994-96. He received Academic All-Ohio Athletic Conference honors on three occasions. During the 1997 and 1998 campaigns, the Logan, Ohio, native was a graduate assistant at Muskingum where he worked for head coach Jeff Heacock.
Vedit served as a graduate assistant at Indiana before returning to his alma mater to serve as defensive coordinator, a position he held from 2000-03. He then worked for two seasons as a defensive GA at West Virginia under head coach Rich Rodriguez. Veidt was a part of the 2004 and 2005 Big East Champion teams, a 2004 Gator Bowl appearance and a 2006 Sugar Bowl win. Veidt then moved on to coach two seasons at Saint Vincent (PA) College, where he was the defensive coordinator, prior to accepting the Bluffton head position in 2008.
Veidt graduated cum laude from Muskingum in 1996 with a degree in pre-physical therapy and a master’s degree in athletic coaching education from WVU in 2005.
Veidt and his wife, Mandy, have a son, Teddy, and twin girls, Lamonica and Guiliana.
