Tennessee Tech hires Temple assistant Marcus Satterfield

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.
