Immediately after Jeff Brohm’s rejection, Appalachian State head coach Scott Satterfield emerged as the top candidate for UofL athletic director Vince Tyra.

On Friday FootballScoop.com reported that Tyra hoped to interview Satterfield on Saturday following App State’s Sun Belt Conference Championship game against Louisiana.

Shortly after the report surfaced, Satterfield confirmed with the Winston Salem Journal that Louisville has reached out to his representatives about the job.

“I think I owe it to myself and my family to take a look,” Satterfield said. “And I’ve always said I’ll listen. I’ll listen to see what people have to say.

“And if there is interest on their part, we’ll see where it’s at. If it’s going to benefit our family and is a situation we feel like we can have success, then that’s something we’ll take serious. And if not, we’ll move on and continue to build a powerhouse here at Appalachian State.”

In six seasons Satterfield is 50-24 overall. App State is the first program to win its first three bowl games of school history.

Satterfield will earn $712,500 this year and $750,385 next year. His buyout is $425,000 if he obtains permission from his athletic director before accepting another job.

I’d be shocked if Satterfield isn’t the next Louisville head coach.
