Louisville has tabbed Appalachian State's Scott Satterfield to be the Cardinals' next football coach.
A person with knowledge of the situation says the school has reached an agreement with Satterfield. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Monday on condition of anonymity because neither the school nor Satterfield had publicly announced the decision. Louisville has scheduled a Tuesday afternoon news conference with a "special announcement" about the program.
The 45-year-old Satterfield emerged as Louisville's next reported choice after Purdue's Jeff Brohm turned down the offer from his alma mater last week to remain with the Boilermakers. Satterfield has led the Mountaineers to a 51-24 record in six seasons, including 10-2 this year with a Sun Belt Conference championship. Appalachian State will face Middle Tennessee in the New Orleans Bowl on Dec. 15.
