Scott Satterfield has continued his impressive start as the new head coach for Louisville Football. Football Scoop is reporting that Dwayne Ledford will be Satterfield’s offensive line coach at UofL. Ledford held the position at App State before Dave Doeren lured him away in 2016. For the last three years, the NC State offensive line has been one of the best in the ACC and you could make a fair argument that the group has been one of the best in the nation over that span.
Ledford was a Broyles Award nominee in 2017 and four of his offensive linemen were All-ACC performers. In 2018 his line gave up the third fewest sacks in the country with two option teams finishing better. Garrett Bradbury just won the Rimington Award for the nation’s top center this past week, also. Bradbury was a 240 pound tight end with no other power five offers when he got to NC State. He developed into the best center in the country with Ledford as his coach.
We’ll have to wait a while to see how this staff looks when it’s complete, but landing a coach of this caliber with his first hire outside of App State coaches is a great sign. Coach Satt is off to a good start with young coaches that have proven that they can coach their areas to great results. There’s a good chance that trend continues over the next few weeks.
