List season is here, folks.
With the roughly seven month stretch of the college football and basketball season ending it’s now time for those that cover the sports to crank out the off-season content.
This it the time of the year where we see various different lists from the major outlets. First up is CBS Sports’ annual power five football coach rankings.
Louisville’s Scott Satterfield hasn’t coached at the power five level yet, but he still managed to crack the top 40.
37 . LOUISVILLE – Scott Satterfield
The new Louisville coach has a nice starting point in these rankings as he takes over for Bobby Petrino (who was 29th last year, so these rankings provide no job security). In six seasons at Appalachian State, Satterfield went 51-24 and won three consecutive Sun Belt titles before taking this job. It’ll be a lot more difficult winning conference titles while playing in the same division as Clemson and Florida State, however.
You can check out the full list here.
I’m as excited about the Satterfield era as anyone, but I was a little surprised to see him ranked this high.
FWIW: Kentucky’s Mark Stoops finished two spots behind Satterfield at No. 39 despite winning ten games last year. Double digit wins at Kentucky is something I thought only Nick Saban would be able to do. Purdue’s Jeff Brohm came in at No. 28.<
