The Louisville Cardinals have found their next head coach. The school has hired Scott Satterfield to be their new head football coach.
Satterfield replaces Bobby Petrino and Lorenzo Ward, who coached the 2018 season. Petrino was fired in November and Ward completed the season.
We reported on Saturday that Satterfield was the top target after Yahoo! Sports College Football reporter Pat Forde broke the news. That very day, he guided his former Mountaineers team to the first-ever Sun Belt Conference Championship with a 30-19 win over the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns.

They were defeated 52-10 by the North Carolina State Wolfpack on November 17th. One week later, they were defeated by then-No. 17 Kentucky Wildcats, 56-10, for the Governor’s Cup.
Satterfield went 51-24 as the Mountaineers head coach over the last six seasons. In the past four seasons; however, he guided the team to a 40-11 record.
Prior to being named the Mountaineers head coach, he served as the team’s Offensive Coordinator in 2012. He also was the Florida International University (FIU) Golden Panthers Offensive Coordinator in 2010 and 2011.
