The contract details for new Michigan defensive coordinator Jesse Minter have been released. The latest addition to the Wolverines staff has agreed to a 3-year deal to join Jim Harbaugh’s crew in Ann Arbor.

According to, Minter has agreed to the 3-year deal, which will pay him $2.75 million during that time. It will begin with a base salary of $900,000 in 2022. He will then see a $25,000 pay bump each of the next two seasons, culminating in a $950,000 salary in 2024.

Minter will also have performance incentives worked into his contract that could result in bonuses. If Michigan finishes in the Top 2 in points allowed, he will receive $100,000. He will also receive $50,000 for every game the Wolverines win that exceeds 8.

Should Minter leave the school for another job after Year 1 or Year 2, he will owe Michigan a $900,000 buyout. If his departure comes after Year 3, he’ll owe $450,000.

Minter joined Harbaugh’s staff in Ann Arbor after Mike Macdonald left the program to return to John Harbaugh’s Baltimore Ravens staff in the NFL. He was with the Wolverines for just one season.

Last season, Minter served as the defensive coordinator at Vanderbilt.
