Scott Satterfield could be coaching his last game for the Louisville Cardinals on Saturday. ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg reports, ” If Louisville falls to lowly Virginia on Saturday before an open week, a change is expected.” Satterfield has been on the hot seat since the 2020 season when the North Carolinian native was rumored to have entertained the South Carolina job after Will Muschamp was fired. The height of Satterfield’s coaching career at Louisville came in his first season, where in 2019, the Cardinals finished 8-5 and recorded a Music City Bowl championship. Louisville posted a 4-7 record the following season and finished 12th in the ACC.
Undoubtedly, if Satterfield is finished, there will be immediate pleas for Jeff Brohm. Nevertheless, Brohm is once again peaking at Purdue. After an impressive win last week against Minnesota, Purdue is in the running to finish 1st in the Big Ten West and coming off back-to-back wins. Brohm has already turned down the Louisville job once. It is well known he was offered the job before Satterfield accepted the position.
Satterfield is currently under contract until 2024 and has an annual salary of 3.25 million. If Satterfield is terminated, the University of Louisville could be on the hook for nearly seven million dollars, according to MGM sportsbooks. Bryan Brown, who is currently the associate head coach, could be given an opportunity to serve as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season. Brown played defensive back for the Old Miss Rebels from 2003-2006 and has been on Scott Satterfield’s staff since 2012 when they worked together at Appalachian State. Brown has coached the defensive backs at Louisville since 2018.
