Dan Campbell Wife
American football coach Daniel Allen Campbell is legally married to Holly Campbell. They exchanged vows in 2005, and since then, their marriage has been a happy one.
Following their nuptials, they relocated throughout Detroit until settling in Texas.
When the sportsman was seen cuddling up to his girlfriend in 2015, rumours of their relationship quickly spread.
They were even seen kissing before a Dolphins game against the New York Giants, which is how their story began, according to an eyewitness.
In fact, he has kept his wife out of the prying eyes of the media, finding comfort in anonymity. He is quite protective of his wife.
Because they dislike the spotlight, not even his Instagram account, coachdancamp, contains any evidence of their presence.
They delegated the heavy lifting to the man of the house so that he could keep them hidden from prying eyes.
One reason that Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell is such an animated character is what he drinks to help himself wake up every morning.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Campbell explained he starts every day with two Starbucks venti size Pike Place Roast coffees with two shots of espresso in each.
Lions HC Dan Campbell Says He Drinks 40 Ounces of Coffee, 4 Espresso Shots Per Day.
Which is still terrible. Although studies vary, it appears that 400mg of caffeine per day is considered the upper tier of “safe” for adults.
Any more and you’re messing with high blood pressure and an increased chance of heart disease.
If you have two venti Starbucks Pike Place coffees, that’s 820mg. Add in two espresso shots at 75mg each, and you have 970mg.
If we’re wrong and Campbell actually is drinking double all of that, you’re at 1,940mg. The FDA says rapid consumption of caffeine that could lead to seizures starts at about 1,200mg.
