Dan Campbell’s wife Holly and their children

Dan Campbell’s wife is Holly Campbell (née Charla) who is 47 years old. Holly and Dan have been married since 2005 and, although he’s based in Detroit, they share the bulk of their time back home in Texas, where Dan was born.

Dan was spotted kissing Holly before before a Dolphins game against the New York Giants in 2015.

Holly has kept out of the spotlight for most of Dan’s NFL career while raising their two children. Dan and Holly Campbell have a son, Cody, and a daughter, Piper.

Cody Campbell is reportedly a 5ft 11in tight end at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, and is majoring in business analytics and technology with a minor in sports management.

He selected Trinity because of its “football program as well as prestigious academics,” and hopes to one day become a general manager in the NFL.
