Campbell has announced that football coach Mike Minter has resigned, effective immediately, to pursue other opportunities.

“Over the last 11 seasons, Coach Minter has made great contributions to our football program, helping us transition to scholarship football and helping lay the foundation for our move to the CAA,” said director of athletics Hannah Bazemore. “We want to thank Coach Minter for his impact on our student-athletes, Campbell and the community. We wish him and his family the best.”

“It has been a great learning experience over the 11 years, but 11 years is enough time at one place,” Minter said. “I need to move on to get other experiences in coaching. I appreciate Campbell and its support over these years. I want to personally thank Bob Roller (former Campbell athletic director) in giving me my start in coaching.”

Minter’s record with the Camels was 45-66, including a 5-6 mark in the season just completed. Campbell was 4-4 in its first season in the Coastal Athletic Association in 2023.

Minter played safety for the Carolina Panthers from 1997 to 2006. He was a member of national championship teams at Nebraska in 1994 and 1995. Minter had 18 tackles for the Panthers in Super Bowl XXXVIII, a 32-29 loss to New England. He continued playing despite a breaking a bone in his left foot in the third quarter of that game in Houston.

Assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Steven Williams will serve as interim head coach.

A national search will begin immediately.
