Marcus Satterfield is entering his fourth season as offensive coordinator for the Mocs. He spent his first three years grooming one of the most talented quarterbacks UTC has ever seen into an NFL draft pick. Heading in to 2012, he has totally revamped Chattanooga's offense to focus on the next generation of Mocs.
B.J. Coleman had an outstanding three-year career under the tutelage of Satterfield. He was eventually picked in the seventh round of the NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers, graduating with a UTC record 52 touchdown passes.
The 2010 season saw UTC rank No. 11 in the nation with 4,730 yards of total offense, the third highest mark in school history. Chattanooga also ranked in the top 20 in the FCS with 31.5 points per game, the second highest total in school history. UTC ranked No. 8 in the nation in passing offense with 277 yards per game and was third in the FCS in third-down conversions at 48.7%. Five offensive players were named to the All-SoCon team, while receiver Joel Bradford was pegged Third-Team All-American by the Associated Press.
In 2009, Coleman and Blue Cooper made up one of the top pass-catch tandems in the country. Cooper was No. 6 in the nation with 84 receptions and went on to sign a free-agent contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Prior to coming to UTC, Satterfield was the offensive coordinator at UT Martin for three seasons. There he helped the Skyhawks win the 2006 Ohio Valley Conference championship and finish with the No. 1 ranked scoring offense in the OVC in 2008. He also led the 2007 squad to a No. 1 league ranking in total offense and points-per-game.
Chattanooga head coach Russ Huesman and Satterfield worked together at Richmond during the 2004 season. Satterfield left Richmond to coach at Western Carolina for two years before joining UT Martin's staff.
Satterfield was a three-year letterman as a wide receiver and punter at East Tennessee State from 1995-98, earning his degree from ETSU in 1999. He also played point guard for Chattanooga State Community College during the 1994-95 season. He is married to the former Sarah Houser and the couple has one daughter, Harper.
