COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee Tech has hired Temple offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield as its football coach.

Satterfield spent the last three years at Temple, but he has a Tennessee background. Satterfield, who is 39, played at East Tennessee State and spent four seasons at Chattanooga's offensive coordinator and three years as an assistant at UT Martin.

He was a graduate assistant at Tennessee for two years and also worked as an assistant at Richmond and Western Carolina.

In a school release Monday, Satterfield said that ''as a coach's son growing up in the state of Tennessee and coaching in the state and the Ohio Valley Conference, I have always looked at Tennessee Tech as a possible landing spot for me.''

Satterfield replaces Watson Brown, who retired after going 42-60 in nine seasons.
