“I think I owe it to myself and my family to take a look,” Satterfield said Friday according to the Winston-Salem Journal. “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.”
