Campbell joined Richmond via the 1989 National Draft being the club's fifth pick (No. 29 overall). In a 15 season career from 1991 until 2005, Campbell played 297 games, three games short of the coveted 300-game milestone and the fourth-most in club history. He was club captain from 2001 to 2004 and was succeeded by Kane Johnson. Campbell was regarded as a very consistent player who played in the forward line, the backline and on the wing, before becoming the prime mover in the Richmond midfield during the mid-to-late 1990s with a reputation as a first-class decision maker.
Campbell won the Jack Dyer Medal (the award for the Best and Fairest player at the Richmond Football Club) four times, in 1995, 1997, 1999 and 2002. He was also runner-up in 1992, 1993 and 2001. He placed third for the award in 1998.
Campbell also received two All-Australian guernseys (awarded to players adjudged the best in their positions in the AFL competition) in 1995 and 1999. In addition, he represented Victoria in State of Origin matches and Australia in International Rules Series matches.
In June 2013, Campbell was inducted into the Richmond Hall of Fame.
Campbell took over the role as the AFL Umpires Manager in 2014 where his knowledge of the game and ways to grow umpiring at the grassroots level have been noted by those in the industry.
