Johnson C. Smith football has lost a pair of high-profile assistant coaches during the offseason.

According to campus sources, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Maurice Flowers has taken the same position at CIAA South rival Shaw while defensive passing game coordinator Mike Minter left for the special teams coordinator’s position at Liberty (Va.), an FCS program. Minter’s photo and biography are on Liberty’s football website.

Flowers, a former JCSU quarterback and East Mecklenburg High graduate, turned the Golden Bulls’ offense into one of the CIAA’s best in two seasons. An advocate of the spread offense, Flowers coached JCSU to fourth in CIAA scoring (26.9 points per game) and third in total offense (352.8 yards a game). Freshman quarterback Keahn Wallace led the league in total offense at 247.8 yards per game (200.5 passing) and was named CIAA offensive rookie of the year in 2011.

Minter, a former Carolina Panthers safety and high school coach, spent one season at JCSU, helping the Golden Bulls’ defense improve from 140th in Division II to 72nd.

The Golden Bulls start spring drills next month.
