Chad Wilt joined the University of Minnesota football staff in January 2020. He will serve as Minnesota’s defensive line coach. Wilt, who has nearly two decades of coaching experience, comes to Minnesota after one year coaching the defensive line at Cincinnati. He has also coached the defensive line at Army West Point, Maryland, Ball State, Richmond, Virginia, Liberty and Central Connecticut State. During his lone year at Cincinnati, Wilt was part of a defensive staff which led the American Athletic Conference in total defense. The Bearcats posted 96 tackles for loss and 31 sacks on the season, as Cincinnati won 11 games for only the fourth time in school history. Cincinnati allowed only 138.6 rushing yards per game and yielded only 15 rushing touchdowns in 14 games. The Bearcats, which allowed only 20.6 points per game, earned the American Athletic Conference East Division title, won the TicketSmarter Birmingham Bowl and ended the season ranked No. 21 in the AP poll. Wilt’s time at Army was impactful as the Black Knights went 29-10 from 2016-18 with three wins against rival Navy, three postseason bowl wins and a pair of Commander in Chief's Trophy as the nation's top service academy in football.
