LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Scott Satterfield continues to put the pieces of his coaching staff together, adding a defensive line coach Monday.

Mark Ivey, a former assistant at Appalachian State will coach the defensive line for the Cardinals.

Ivey served as interim coach of the Mountaineers after Satterfield announced he’d be leaving Appalachian State to head to Louisville. He guided App State to its first Sun Belt Championship Game win, and a bowl game win.

With Ivey as assistant coach, the Mountaineers ranked 17th nationally in 2017 with 38 sacks.

Ivey was also a linebacker and defensive lineman at Appalachian State from 1991-1995. He recorded 166 tackles in 47 games.

The Cardinals open the 2019 season hosting Notre Dame on Labor Day.
