The initial pieces of Scott Satterfield’s first Louisville football coaching staff appear to be falling into place.
According to a report from the Winston-Salem Journal, Appalachian State assistants Bryan Brown and Frank Ponce are expected to follow Satterfield from North Carolina to Louisville.
Assistant coaches Bryan Brown and Frank Ponce of Appalachian State are expected to join the Louisville football coaching staff, multiple people with knowledge of the move told the Journal on Wednesday.
The two will become the initial hires made by Scott Satterfield, the six-year Mountaineers coach who was introduced Tuesday as the next head coach of the Cardinals program.
It’s unclear what roles they will hold with the Cardinals.
Brown is in his first season as Appalachian State’s defensive coordinator, while Ponce has been serving as co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
During his introductory press conference on Tuesday, Satterfield stated that he expected to bring “a couple” of members from his old staff into U of L immediately, and that more could join after Appalachian State’s bowl game. The Mountaineers face Middle Tennessee in the New Orleans Bowl on Dec. 15.
