ASU Board of Trustees Approves Contract Adjustment for Football Coach Satterfield, Extension for Baseball Coach


Sept. 29, 2014. Appalachian State University’s Board of Trustees approved an adjustment of the terms of football coach Scott Satterfield’s contract and a three-year contract extension for baseball coach Billy Jones on Friday.

Satterfield, who is in his second year as Appalachian State’s head coach and signed a four-year contract prior to Appalachian State’s move to NCAA Division I FBS, had the terms of his contract adjusted to fall in line with other football head coaches in the Sun Belt Conference. His contract runs through 2016.

“I thank our administration and the Board of Trustees for their continued commitment to myself, our staff and our student-athletes as we make the transition to FBS and the Sun Belt Conference,” Satterfield said.

Jones, who is in the third and final year of his original contract, was extended through the 2018 season.

“Appalachian State has been nothing but supportive of me and my staff since we arrived two years ago. I thank the Board of Trustees and our athletics administration, past and present, for that support,” Jones said.
