Louisville head football coach Scott Satterfield was named ACC Coach of the Year. Satterfield is the first head coach in program history to earn the ACC honor. Louisville has been a member of the ACC for six years.
Satterfield received 23 of the 60 votes, Virginia's Bronco Mendehall got 17, and Clemson's Dabo Swinney got 15.
Last season, Bobby Petrino was let go following a disappointing 2-10 season with an 0-8 mark in conference play. Satterfield was hired as Petrino's replacement with hopes to turn the program around.
The Cards finished the season 7-5 with a 5-3 mark in the ACC. The record is good enough to become bowl eligible and finish second in the ACC Atlantic division and tied for third overall.
Satterfield won Coach of the Year honors with Appalachian State, making him one of six coaches in NCAA history to win back-to-back Coach of the Year honors with different teams.
Louisville awaits their bowl announcement.
