Scott Satterfield is the gift that keeps on giving. His predecessor, Bobby Petrino, was verbally crucified by Louisville media for neglecting to recruit local high school stars. When Satterfield arrived on UofL’s campus, he vowed to change that immediately.
“The closed doors are no longer,” Satterfield said.
Well, the doors were open once.
“He has been in our building one time, his first year. We have not seen him since,” said one Central Kentucky high school football coach.
That high school football coach was one of nine who anonymously spoke to Kyle Tucker in The Athletic’s ongoing “recruiting confidential” series. There was not a complete consensus that Satterfield is terrible at his job — one even said he’s done “a really good job” recruiting the state since taking over — but some of these quotes speak for themselves.
Satterfield has handed Vince Marrow football recruits from the state of Kentucky on a silver platter. It’s not just radio silence from Louisville’s head coach. The fans and most vocal media members have not said a peep following the scathing report.
The University of Louisville’s coaches and supporters have waved the white flag, surrendering the state’s top talent to Kentucky. You love to see it.
