LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - New Louisville head football coach Scott Satterfield is continuing to put his coaching staff together, with two big additions.

On Tuesday, Satterfield officially named Dwayne Ledford the Cardinals' new offensive coordinator and offensive line coach.

Ledford comes to Louisville after three years as the offensive line coach at North Carolina State. Under Ledford’s leadership, the Wolfpack offensive line was third in the country in sacks allowed, allowing fewer than one per game (0.75) in 2018. Upon his arrival, Ledford cut the sacks allowed by his team in half, from 39 in 2015, to 17 in 2016. NC State led the Atlantic Coast Conference with the fewest sacks allowed in both 2017 and 2018.

Before coaching at NC State, Ledford was with Appalchian State for seven years, four as offensive line coach and three years as co-offensive coordinator for the run game.
