After Will Muschamp was canned from South Carolina after a less-than-stellar tenure in Columbia, the Gamecocks are looking for a new head man to take over the program? One name that is interviewing for the opening position? Louisville Cardinals head coach Scott Satterfield.
The Athletic is reporting that Satterfield is among the candidates for the Gamecocks’ head coaching position, and plan to interview Satterfield soon, but not before this Thursday. South Carolina has already had an interview with Coastal Carolina head coach Jamey Chadwell, and also has an interview scheduled with Oklahoma assistant coach Shane Beamer.
Satterfield took over for the Cardinals in 2019, going 8-5 in his first season in Louisville, which also included a 45-13 shellacking at the hands of Lynn Bowden and the Kentucky Wildcats.
This season, however, Louisville has not reached their full potential in the All-ACC schedule, currently sitting at 3-6 overall and in 12th place in the conference.
Matt Jones summed up Satterfield and the rest of collegiate coaches pretty well:

The hypocrisy of coaches like Scott’s Tots will never cease to amaze me https://t.co/euW7zaMbca
It is pretty amazing how many people involved in Louisville athletics say one thing and do the complete opposite. Rick Pitino’s imprints clearly are still strong on that school up north.
