Michigan defensive coordinator Jesse Minter is leaving Michigan to reportedly join head coach Jim Harbaugh with the Los Angeles Chargers in the same role.

Minter announced his departure on social media Tuesday afternoon.

MMQB’s Albert Breer and ESPN’s Adam Schefter report that he has a deal in place to become the Chargers’ defensive coordinator. Minter was Harbaugh’s defensive coordinator at Michigan for two seasons, including the team that won a national championship in January.

Minter’s exit continues the exodus from Ann Arbor following Harbaugh’s departure in January. Harbaugh’s son and former safeties and special teams coordinator is reportedly joining the Seattle Seahawks as special teams coordinator on new coach Mike MacDonald’s staff. Vaunted strength and conditioning coach Ben Herbert also followed Harbaugh to Los Angeles.

Tuesday’s reported hiring of Minter furthers Harbaugh’s stated priority from his introductory news conference of building out his coaching staff.
