Former Carolina Panthers safety Mike Minter is expected to be named head football coach at Campbell on Tuesday, according to published reports.


The Charlotte Observer reported the hire on its website Monday afternoon. Campbellís athletic website posted a statement on the introduction of a new coach scheduled for Tuesday, but provided no further details.


Minter, 38, would replace Dale Steele, who went 16-39 since the Division I FCS Camels returned to football in 2006 after dropping the sport in 1950.  Campbell went 1-10 last year after going 6-5 in 2011.


Minter is the special teams coach at Liberty (Va.) and previously was Johnson C. Smithís secondary coach and head coach at First Assembly Christian in Concord. During a 10-year career with Carolina (1997-2006) he established franchise records for games started (141), consecutive starts (94), fumbles recovered and interception returns for touchdowns.


Minterís first game with the Camels will be at the Charlotte 49ers in that programís inaugural game.
