- Scott Satterfield replaced Bobby Petrino in late 2019.
- He’s in his fourth season as head coach.
- Satterfield is below .500 in ACC games.
When Scott Satterfield interviewed for the South Carolina vacancy in late 2020, he didn’t tell Louisville athletics director Vince Tyra, made a stupid justification for doing so, and, according to him, lost the trust and support of Louisville football season ticket-holders.
Satterfield, presumably, hasn’t earned back the trust and support of fans with the Cardinals’ on-field performance since the South Carolina debacle two years ago. After losing to Boston College in Week 5, he’s just 20-22 overall and 12-17 in ACC games as head coach.
And Satterfield is probably on the college football hot seat this season.
What Is Scott Satterfield’s Contract?
Scott Satterfield signed a six-year contract in December 2018 after spending the previous seven seasons as App State head coach. The contract runs through Dec. 31, 2024.
He has a guaranteed annual combined base and media salary of $3.25 million, not including athletic or academic bonuses.
What Is Scott Satterfield’s Buyout?
If fired without cause before the contract ends on Dec. 31, 2024, Scott Satterfield is owed a buyout equal to 75% of the remaining value.
For simplicity’s sake, if Satterfield is fired on Dec. 31, 2022, five weeks after Louisville’s regular-season finale at Kentucky, he’d be owed approximately $4.875 million, i.e., 75% of $6.5 million.
The buyout amount can be lowered if Satterfield obtains employment during the period for which the Cardinals are paying him.
