Scott Satterfield Bio
Release: 04/09/2010

Scott Satterfield joins the FIU staff after spending a season as the passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Toledo. Last year the Rockets averaged 438 yards of offense, including 278 in the passing game.

After spending both his playing and coaching career at Appalachian State. Satterfield was the Mountaineers' starting quarterback for three seasons from 1993-95, earning first-team All-Southern Conference honors as senior after leading the Mountaineers to a 12-1 record. He earned his bachelor's degree from ASU in 1996.

Satterfield began his coaching career at Appalachian State in 1998, mentoring wide receivers for one season then moving to running backs from 1999-2002. He was the quarterbacks coach for the past six seasons, assuming many of the duties of an offense coordinator, including play-calling.

Satterfield coached the top two quarterbacks in Appalachian State's history, Richie Williams and Armanti Edwards, both of whom set school records for passing, rushing yardage for quarterbacks and total offense on their way to All-America honors. Edwards, a junior, was the 2008 Walter Payton Award recipient, throwing for 2,902 yards and 30 touchdowns, and rushing for 1,169 yards and 11 TDs.

"Scott is a proven winner," said Beckman. "He has coached for three national championship teams and has coached a Walter Payton Award winner. I've known Scott for about eight years. When I was at Bowling Green, our staff got together with the offensive staffs from Appalachian State and Missouri during the spring to compare notes and exchange ideas. They ran the same spread offense at Appalachian State that we ran at Bowling Green and will be running here at Toledo. So as a coach and as a person, Scott fits in very well with what we want for our program."

Satterfield helped with the transition of Appalachian State's offense from a power-I to a spread offense in 2004. After a 6-5 season in 2004, the Mountaineers' high-powered offense was a key factor in Appalachian State winning three straight national championships from 2005-07. In those three championship seasons, the Mountaineers went 39-6, including a 34-32 win over then-No. 5 Michigan in 2007, considered by some observers to be the biggest upset in college football history.

ASU made the FCS playoffs for the fourth straight season in 2008, falling to Richmond, 33-13, in the second round. The Mountaineers finished with an 11-3 record.

Satterfield, a native of Hillsborough, NC, is married to the former Beth Burleson, a star on the ASU track team in the mid-90's. They have a daughter, Alli, and two sons, Bryce and Isaac.
