App State chooses Satterfield to replace Moore

Appalachian State has given interim coach Scott Satterfield the permanent job.

The school announced Friday that Satterfield was chosen as the replacement for Jerry Moore.

Satterfield has spent 17 of the past 22 years at the school as either a player or assistant. He was a quarterback for the Mountaineers from 1992-95 and as a senior led them to the only unbeaten and untied season in school history.

Satterfield was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach this season. He was put in charge of the program on an interim basis earlier this month, when it was announced that Moore would not return for a 25th season.

Moore led Appalachian State to three national titles from 2005-07 and a memorable upset of then-No. 5 Michigan in 2007.
