Minter wants to be Charlotte's first coach

Even before the Board of Trustees approved a funding plan Friday that moved the creation of a Charlotte 49ers' football program one step closer to reality, former Carolina Panther safety Mike Minter had already begun lobbying to be the program's first coach.

He didn't stop when contacted early Friday afternoon.

"We've already had discussions early on," Minter said when asked about talking with Charlotte athletic director Judy Rose. "She definitely understands what's in my heart about wanting to be their coach."

Minter has coached a private school -- First Assembly -- the past two years, winning the NCISAA Division II state championship with a 13-0 record this season.

"When you make that commitment (as Charlotte did), people see they are for real about this," Minter said. "I'm excited this got passed."

I don't think this is going anywhere. I don't believe the university wants to bring on a guy who's been sued in every business venture he's ever been involved in.
