The problem of a neutral spinning particle in interaction with a linear increasing rotating magnetic field and a Poschl-Teller potential is considered via path integrals. The calculations are carried out explicitly using an external current source. The problem is then reduced to that of a spinning forced Poschl-Teller oscillator whose spin is coupled to external derivative current sources. The result of the propagator is given as a series. The relative propagator of this forced oscillator is converted to that of an angular momentum via an extension of the dimension. Next, the series is exactly summed by means of a Laplace transformation and the orthonormalization relation of the eigenfunctions of the angular momentum.
