Louisville Football: A Look Into Preparing for Life After Sports

Since he became the head coach of the Louisville program in December 2018, Scott Satterfield has made it very clear that academics would be a focal point for the Cardinals. Not only are they pushing the student-athletes to be the best they can be on the field, but the coaching staff is also trying to prepare them for life after football. The emphasis on academic study has already paid dividends for the program: “In two seasons, 12 student-athletes have earned 4.0 grade point averages and 246 of his (Satterfield) players have been named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. A total of 60 players have graduated since he took over the program and 21 will play the 2021 season with their degrees in hand (Louisville Football Media Guide).”
