The Vanderbilt University Commodores named Baltimore Ravens defensive backs coach Jesse Minter as their new defensive coordinator and safeties coach on Thursday.

Minter, a 2005 College of Mount St. Joseph graduate and four-year football letterwinner at MSJ, spent two seasons as a graduate assistant coach for the Cincinnati Bearcats in 2008 and 2009. He is the son of Rick Minter - UC's head coach from 1994 to 2003.

Minter has been a defensive coordinator at Georgia State and Indiana State. He joined the Ravens as an assistant coach under Miami University graduate and former UC special teams coordinator John Harbaugh in 2017.

UC offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock interviewed earlier this month for the same position at Vanderbilt, according to multiple reports. ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reported last week that Denbrock is staying at UC. Rittenberg reported via Twitter that Vandy is expected to hire Arizona Cardinals wide receivers coach David Raih as its offensive coordinator.

Last month, Vanderbilt named Clark Lea - Notre Dame's defensive coordinator for the past three seasons - its new head coach.
