Chip Kelly’s coaching staff update (Jan 1st, 2013) Rick Minter hired


No official word yet on Pat Shurmur (although he is expected to join the staff), but some new additions today in this update.

Former Kentucky DC Rick Minter will join the staff as the linebackers coach.

“From 1994 through 2003, Minter was head coach at Cincinnati, compiling a 54-63-1 record, although he did have three future NFL head coaches on his staff at various times – John Harbaugh, Mike Tomlin and Rex Ryan.”

Earlier today, New York Giants linebackers coach Jim Herrmann withdrew his name from the possible list of defensive coordinator candidates.

Also, Bill McGovern, LB coach from Boston College, will reportedly join Kelly’s staff in some capacity.
