2018 Football Coaching Carousel

I think you’re assuming we can’t compete with ECU on salary. Mike Hill has already stated $900k range. Montgomery was at $1.1m.

Coach made the comment about being closer to family in Franklin if in CLT, so I did some research.
CLT to Franklin NC: ~195 miles
Greenville NC to Franklin NC: ~395 miles
Harrisonburg VA to Franklin NC: ~407 miles

I like these figures.

App now thinks Satterfield is going to Uof L so they will be looking for a new coach next week as well.


#44

Appalachian would be a lateral move in all aspects and certainly not closer to his family


#45

App cannot pay as much as Charlotte or ECU. They just increased Satterfield to around $750k which max’d them out.

Good for him. A coach with that kind of moral and ethic deserves a place like ECU


#54

Scott Satterfield to be the new head coach at Louisville. But I thought the Appies said he loved Boone and wasn’t going anywhere! lol

#56

Satterfield’s children will no longer go to school with the move to Louisville. They just do not meet the Watauga County School standard.


#57

The App fans thought he was going to stay in Boone and retire like Moore did several years ago. I have never seen a place feel that someone making $750k would not want to move to make over $3M a year.

I expect that if our football or basketball coach left for a bigger job that we would wish them well since that would mean we were back to winning and hopefully can bring in another successful coach. I had an App fan tell me today that they did not think Satterfield would leave since they expected to win the next 2-3 conference championships.

JMU is having a presser tomorrow at 2:30. They think it’s their next guy, or at least the person overseeing the transition.


#59

College football coaching is kind of a dirty little frat. Play the game well, you score millions. Play it really well, people like you too.
