Scott Satterfield lands an a veteran coach and high level recruiter.

Appalachian v Michigan

Football Scoop has reported that Scott Satterfield has finished out his staff and will hire wide receiver coach Gunter Brewer. Brewer is a veteran coach that spent 2018 coaching the Philadelphia Eagles receivers. Before heading to the NFL Brewer was the co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach at UNC under Larry Fedora. At 54, Brewer will be the second oldest coach on the UofL staff, but he may just have the most energy. He’s known for his enthusiastic personality at practices as well as his great interviews off the field.

Brewer is a long time coach and he’s had some really good players flourish under his coaching. Randy Moss and Dez Bryant are the two biggest names but I really was impressed with the North Carolina receivers that he coached a few years back when they went the the ACC championship game. Mack Hollins, Ryan Switzer, and Bug Howard were all studs for UNC and the other complimentary players were always ready to step up when needed. Brewer has done really well over the years to develop guys that were solid players into very good players that make it at the next level.

Before his time at UNC, Brewer coached Justin Blackmon and Bryant at Oklahoma State. Blackmon was his second Biletnikoff Award winner and Bryant finished in second place for the award. Moss won the award back when Brewer coached the receivers at Marshall. Wherever Brewer has coached, he’s gotten great results. I think it’s safe to say that he can do some really good things with the group that he’s inheriting.

As a recruiter he has a long history of landing top talent. He was the lead recruiter for Dez Bryant when he was at Oklahoma State and flipped Elijah Hood to UNC from Notre Dame. Brewer also landed Jordyn Adams, Antoine Green, and Anthony Ratliff-Williams at UNC as well as being the secondary recruiter for Mitch Trubisky. He was the guy UNC relied on to get top talent and he delivered most of the time. He’ll bring a great recruiting presence to North Carolina for the Cards.
