Mount St. Joseph, 2005
Jesse Minter returns home to Cincinnati for his second season with the Bearcats' football team. His primary duties will be assisting the defensive staff in all aspects on and off the field and assisting in coaching the linebackers.
A 2005 graduate of the College of Mount St. Joseph, Minter served as a football intern at Notre Dame in 2006. He helped a defensive unit that keyed the Irish to a 10-3 record.
A four-year football letterwinner, Minter helped Mount St. Joseph compile a 30-10 record, marking the best four-year mark in school history, as the Lions won consecutive Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference crowns in 2004 and 2005. As a wide receiver, Minter helped the Lions to back-to-back NCAA Division III playoff appearances in his junior and senior seasons. In 2004, Mount St. Joseph posted a perfect 10-0 mark in the regular season andost to eventual national champion Mount Union in the first round the following year.
A native of Yorktown, Ind., Minter graduated from Yorktown High School. He is the son of former Cincinnati head football coach and current Marshall University defensive coordinator Rick Minter and is married to the former Rachelle Wittich.
