Report: Appalachian State to name Satterfield football coach

Interim football coach Scott Satterfield will reportedly be named Jerry Moore's successor as Appalachian State's head coach.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported late Thursday that a source said Appalachian State and Satterfield reached agreement on a contract earlier in the day, pending approval by the university's board of trustees Friday.

Satterfield, a 39-year-old former ASU quarterback and long-time assistant for the Mountaineers who returned last season after three years away from the program, was named interim head coach on Dec. 2 after the Southern Conference university announced Moore's contract would not be renewed following 24 seasons.

Satterfield spent 11 seasons as an ASU assistant from 1998-2008, left for assistant positions at Toledo (2009) and Florida International (2010-11), and then returned this past year. He served as the assistant head coach and offensive coordinator in Moore's final season.

Satterfield played for ASU from 1992-95, starting 27 games and earning All- SoCon first-team honors as a senior.

The Mountaineers posted an 8-4 record and earned a share of its seventh SoCon title in eight seasons this season. They qualified for the FCS playoffs for the eighth straight season.
