Louisville has tabbed Appalachian State's Scott Satterfield to be the Cardinals' next football coach.
A person with knowledge of the situation says the school has reached an agreement with Satterfield. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Monday on condition of anonymity because neither the school nor Satterfield had publicly announced the decision. Louisville has scheduled a Tuesday afternoon news conference with a "special announcement" about the program.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville began and ended its season in similar fashion, losing big to a ranked school that found it easy to score 50 points against the Cardinals.

Louisville fired Petrino on Sunday morning with two games left in a spiraling season that includes five blowout losses in which the Cardinals allowed at least 50 points.
Louisville (2-7, 0-6 ACC) at No. 13 Syracuse (7-2, 4-2, No. 13 CFP), 7 p.m. EST (ESPN2)
Line: Syracuse by 21.
Series Record: Louisville leads 10-6.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
Syracuse is unbeaten at home and a win would complete the Orange's fourth undefeated season at home since the Carrier Dome opened in 1980 and keep them in the running for a first-tier bowl game. A Syracuse victory also would be another strike against Louisville coach Bobby Petrino, whose future at the school is teetering on the brink.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Wake Forest running back Matt Colburn II couldn't believe the space he had on many of his carries against Louisville.
While that says a lot about the Demon Deacons' run blocking, the senior did a lot in turning those openings into a career day against the school that pulled its scholarship offer.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Wake Forest and Louisville are both looking for their first win in Atlantic Coast Conference play this season.
They enter Saturday's matchup a combined 0-7 in league play. Louisville (2-5, 0-4 ACC) had last week off to regroup after its fourth straight loss, and players and coaches and should be refreshed as they try to get out of the division basement.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville coach Bobby Petrino wants his struggling team to focus on the next opponent rather than looking toward bigger goals such as a ninth consecutive postseason appearance.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville is determined to prove it can continue to win, even without Heisman Trophy quarterback Lamar Jackson.
A potentially quiet silly season for coaching moves can quickly turn into whirlwind of big openings.
That was the case last year when Nebraska and Florida descended into tumultuous seasons and fired third-year coaches who had winning records in 2016. Multimillion dollars buyouts be damned.
The reality is most FBS coaches are one truly terrible season away from being fired. Now more than ever changes throughout an administration can trickle down to the coach's office and be the catalyst for change.
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Longtime Carroll College football coach Bob Petrino Sr., the father of Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino and Idaho coach Paul Petrino, has died at his home in Montana. He was 81.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Think you know everything about the Kentucky-Louisville rivalry? UK junior walk-on linebacker Spencer Foy could probably still teach you a thing or two.

He spent a year at U of L, but while visiting former St. X teammate Charles Walker, a UK wide receiver, Foy noticed something in Lexington.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville's season hasn't gone as the Cardinals had hoped, even with Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson continuing to put up huge numbers.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville and Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson hope to continue to build consistency with they take on Murray State in another non-conference game.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville got the easy bounce-back victory it expected and Lamar Jackson broke a school record to boot.
Jackson accounted for three touchdowns to set a Louisville record with 88 in his career and the No. 19 Cardinals routed Kent State 42-3 Saturday.
A week after his team was soundly beaten by Clemson, Cardinals coach Bobby Petrino was happy with the effort but disappointed by four turnovers.
"We basically came out and took care of business," Petrino said.
LOUISVILLE, Ky.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Louisville is off to a better start in protecting Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson. That could make things even tougher for North Carolina's mistake-prone defense to slow the 17th-ranked Cardinals on Saturday.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Lamar Jackson's sequel might not have been as flashy as his Heisman Trophy-winning start last season.
It was every bit as effective.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville coach Bobby Petrino says junior wide receiver and special teams captain Devante Peete will miss the season with a torn right ACL.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Reggie Bonnafon didn't complain when an eventual Heisman Trophy winner supplanted him at quarterback, and he hasn't looked back on what might have been.
He has focused on succeeding wherever Louisville coaches placed him and has remained optimistic while seesawing between being running back and wide receiver the past two seasons.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville has Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson and the Cardinals are motivated to build on their best Atlantic Coast Conference finish.
Rebounding from the stretch-run meltdown that followed the Cardinals' 9-1 start last year also provides incentive to close the deal.
"You can be motivated by your successes or be motivated by your failures," coach Bobby Petrino said of moving past the three-game slide that ended last season.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Former Louisville defensive lineman Chris Williams is scheduled to make an appearance in Jefferson Circuit Court on felony charges of stealing $2,300 from the bank accounts of three teammates.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville coach Bobby Petrino says senior defensive lineman Chris Williams has been dismissed from the team for violating unspecified team rules.
Petrino made the announcement after Monday's first practice of fall camp. He did not elaborate.
Listed No. 2 at one tackle spot on the Cardinals' depth chart, the 6-foot-1, 292-pound Williams was one of the more experienced linemen returning this season.
Recent coaching changes have only boosted Western Kentucky's prospects, a pattern Mike Sanford can't wait to continue in his first coaching job.
WKU opens fall practice Monday under the first-time head coach, who worked most recently as Notre Dame's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. His arrival follows a 12-year journey as an assistant that included a 2010 stop in Bowling Green under Willie Taggart, who's starting over at Oregon.
