Mike Minter Resigns as Campbell Head Coach

Mike Minter has stepped down as head coach of the Campbell Camels after 11 seasons. Minter is the latest FCS coaching change in an already busy coaching carousel.

After a 10-year NFL playing career as a Carolina Panther that concluded in 2006, Minter became a head coach at the high school level in 2008. He led First Assembly Christian and won two state championships in his three seasons. In 2011, he moved to the NCAA Division II school Johnson C. Smith as an associate head coach and special teams coordinator. He spent the 2012 season with Liberty as the special teams coach.

Minter became head coach of Campbell beginning in 2013 with the Camels coming off a 1-10 season and in the non-scholarship Pioneer Football League. The Camels improved under Minter and reached 6-5 in 2017, the final year they were a member of the PFL. In 2018, Campbell moved to scholarship football in the Big South Conference where they put together back-to-back 6-5 campaigns.

Campbell regressed in the final two Big South years going 3-8 in 2021 and 5-6 in 2022. Minter led the program to its third different FCS conference in his tenure when the Camels joined the CAA in 2023, finishing 5-6 overall and in a four-way tie for 6th place. Minter’s coaching career at Campbell concluded with a 49-66 overall record and he went 29-41 in conference games across the PFL, Big South, and CAA.
