Since the potential of being spurned by favored son Jeff Brohm was realized in Louisville, Vince Tyra has both been making and fielding calls.
Wednesday November 28th Brohm revealed his decision. All of Louisville was disappointed; but the show must go on. Tyra has not been sitting still.
Sources tell FootballScoop Tyra had a strong interest in getting to know App State head coach Scott Satterfield. Satt’s squad had a conference championship game coming Saturday, so the meeting was scheduled for after. App State took care of business vs Louisiana Lafayette, adding another Sun Belt title to the trophy case in Boone. Thereafter, sources tell FootballScoop Satterfield did meet with Louisville officials.
However, over the past few days, agents have been registering their clients’ interest with Tyra and some have impressed. Sources tell FootballScoop, Tyra has a meeting today with another candidate who he feels also checks all the right boxes to become the next head coach at Louisville should he get the right feel from him individually. A source familiar with Tyra’s thinking tells FootballScoop, “Vince believes he will have his next head coach later today.”
The question is, will that new head coach be Scott Satterfield or this other candidate? Only time will tell…
