On Football Most Likely to Succeed

Louisville coach Scott Satterfield speaks to the media during his introductory press conference. 

Scott Satterfield's first season at Louisville will be broadcast for all the world to see. 

According to Eric Crawford of WDRB, the former Appalachian State football coach's debut year will be documented in an all-access show for the ACC Network, which is set to launch on Aug. 22.

Athletics director Vince Tyra of Louisville announced the upcoming series during the school's athletic association board of directors meeting on Monday. 

Tyra told those in attendance that the show will be similar to HBO's "Hard Knocks," which follows an NFL team through training camp. 

"We have some good stories to tell around our athletic department and they’re intrigued, but that’s one we offered that they want," Tyra said, according to Crawford. "It’ll be several episodes, just like you’ve seen in Hard Knocks. There’s been some reports and other stories out there, but this will be more broad-based.

"ESPN certainly has shown an interest in coach Satterfield. . . . I think he’ll do a great job with this.”

Satterfield, who spent time at App State as a player and an assistant before becoming head coach, led the Mountaineers program for six seasons before accepting the Louisville job. Satterfield was hired by the Cardinals on Dec. 4, three days after Appalachian won the first championship game in Sun Belt Conference history. 

Louisville went 2-10 last season. The team opens 2019 with a Sept. 2 game against Notre Dame.
