Report: Louisville to hire Scott Satterfield as head coach

Louisville Cardinals

The Louisville Cardinals have their new football coach.

According to Jake Lourim and Danielle Lerner of the Louisville Courier Journal, the Cardinals will hire Appalachian State coach Scott Satterfield as their new head football coach. The hire will be confirmed at a Tuesday afternoon press conference.

Terms of the contract are not public, but the Cardinals will have to pay a relatively paltry $425,000 buyout to hire Satterfield away from Appalachian State.

Satterfield is Louisville’s second choice. They originally targeted Purdue’s Jeff Brohm, but he rejected their offer to stay with his current employer. Satterfield immediately emerged as the second choice, and the process was wrapped up relatively quickly. He’s been very successful at Appalachian State, posting a 51-24 career record, but will be making a big jump as he moves to Louisville.

With their top choice out of the picture, the Louisville Cardinals are moving to other options for their new football coach.

According to Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports, the Cardinals could look toward Appalachian State coach Scott Satterfield as their next option after Purdue coach Jeff Brohm spurned his alma mater to stay where he is.

Satterfield has been very successful, posting a 50-24 record at Appalachian State. He may be a good hire, but he’s not going to be the marquee name that would liven up an apathetic fanbase.

Satterfield was linked to the North Carolina job that has since been filled by Mack Brown. He has no ties to Louisville, but it would be a significant step up from his current position in terms of prestige and resources, so it seems likely that he’d welcome any overtures.
