After a coaching career that took him from Canton High School to Missouri State University, Seth Minter is stepping away. In a letter he posted on Twitter this week, Minter said he decided to get out of the coaching profession to spend more time with family.

Minter came to Missouri State in June 2019 after an eight-year stint at Western Illinois under former Putnam County coach J.D Gravina. Originally from Lancaster, Minter was the head women’s coach at Culver-Stockton during the 2010-11 season. Prior to the collegiate ranks, Minter coached three years at Canton High School, posting a 77-13 (.856) overall record. He earned a total of six coach of the year awards from four organizations, guiding Canton to a number 1 state ranking in 2008-09, a runner-up state finish that same season, and fourth-place finish in 2010.
