BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) — Mike Minter is ready to get his first season as a college head coach going.
The former Carolina Panthers safety has taken over at Campbell. He is bringing the same intensity to the Camels' sideline that helped him set the Panthers' tackling record and lead them to the 2004 Super Bowl.
He's made a quick rise up the coaching ladder after starting out as a high school head coach in Concord in 2008.
After starting some business ventures once his playing career ended, he says he missed "that oval brown ball" and got into coaching.
His first game with the Camels comes next week at Charlotte in a stadium named for his former boss — Panthers owner Jerry Richardson.
