Scott Satterfield is now taking his inconsistent 4-year run as the University of Louisville football coach to another program and he’s about to be very acquainted with them in the coming weeks.
On Monday, ESPN and The Athletic were among the first to report that Satterfield accepted the head coaching job at the University of Cincinnati, which is the same team the Cardinals are scheduled to play in the Wasabi Fenway Bowl game in Boston on Dec. 17.
“It was Mystery Man all along for UC. Official announcement expected at 1 pm. The Fenway Bowl on Dec 17 should be…interesting,” Justin Williams reports.
It was later made official in a tweet from the University of Cincinnati:
Josh Heird, University of Louisville’s directory of athletics, released the following statement:
“We’re grateful to Scott for his dedication to our program and wish him well. We are always prepared to conduct head coaching searches, and we will begin a national search immediately to identify our next head coach. We will be looking for a tremendous leader who recognizes both the history and potential of Louisville Football and is committed longterm to helping the program reach new heights.”
His move to Cincy comes a few years after he tried to leave Louisville for South Carolina.
Satterfield was blasted earlier this year when the team started 2-3 but then the team would reel off victories in five of their next six games. However, Louisville lost to Kentucky for the third straight time under Satterfield to finish 7-5. His career record at Louisville is 25-24, highlighted by an 8-5 record in 2019.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
