JESSE MINTER enters his fourth season with the Ravens and first as the team's defensive backs coach. In 2019, Minter helped lead the Ravens' strong secondary, which included three Pro Bowl defenders: CBs Marlon Humphrey (first) and Marcus Peters (third) and S Earl Thomas III (seventh). Baltimore allowed the NFL's third-fewest points (17.6) and fourth-fewest net yards (300.6) per game en route to a franchise-best 14-2 record and second-straight AFC North division title. The Ravens also ranked fifth against the run (93.4 ypg) and No. 6 vs. the pass (207.2 ypg) last season. Baltimore's 6 defensive TDs in 2019, including 5 by defensive backs, tied (with '06 and '08) for the second most in franchise history (2004 – 7) and also tied (TB) for the most in the NFL. Humphrey and Peters each made multiple game-changing plays, scoring 2 defensive touchdowns each. Baltimore also recorded the NFL's second-best defensive passer rating (77.5). When Minter joined the Ravens in 2017, he worked as a defensive assistant who was responsible for organizing details of quality control and self-scouting, in addition to conducting opponent analysis for both sides of the ball. He also worked closely with secondary coach Chris Hewitt, assisting on-field with the defensive backs. Prior to the NFL, Minter coached for 11 years on the collegiate level, most recently spending four seasons (2013-16) as Georgia State's defensive coordinator.
