Louisville will name Appalachian State's Scott Satterfield as its new football coach, sources have confirmed to ESPN.

Satterfield is 51-24 as a Head Coach, with 13 of those losses coming in his first two season and the other 11over the course of the last 4 seasons.

Satterfield took over after longtime head coach Jerry Moore left the program. He also served as Appalachian State's running backs coach (1999-2002) and quarterbacks coach (2003-2008) before accepting a role as Toledo's quarterbacks coach in 2009.

Satterfield worked as Florida International's offensive coordinator from 2010-11 before returning to Appalachian State in the same capacity in 2012.

This short offseason has had plenty of high profile job openings already and many speculated Satterfield might be a serious candidate for the Head Coaching jobs at both UNC and Maryland.

The team shared the Sun Belt conference title in 2016 and 2017 and won it outright in the inaugural Sun Belt championship game over the weekend.

Prior to signing his deal with Louisville, Satterfield has been a longtime staple at Appalachian State.

The U of L Board of Trustees are set to meet tomorrow at 4 p.m.to presumably finalize the contract, with a press conference at 4:30 p.m.at Cardinal Stadium.
