Former Kentucky running backs coach accepts job at Louisville

Chad Scott, a former running backs coach at Kentucky, has officially signed on to join new head coach Scott Satterfield at Louisville. Once again, he’ll be leading the running backs.

Scott coached at Kentucky from 2013-2015, mentoring running backs including Boom Williams and Jojo Kemp. When Mark Stoops brought Eddie Gran and Darin Hinshaw on board to lead the offense, Scott was set to begin coaching the wide receiver position. But, before that could happen, Scott accepted a job at North Carolina. Scott also left Kentucky for UNC while he was a player for the Cats – he enrolled and played at Kentucky beginning in the year 2000, but he transferred to North Carolina before his junior season.

He returned to Chapel Hill to coach the Tar Heels from 2016-2018, leading the tight end position and serving as one of their main recruiters. That’s where this news could affect Kentucky – Scott is from Florida and has been known to recruit heavily from that area.

During his time at Kentucky, Scott was listed as the primary recruiter for players including Derrick Baity, Sihiem King, Jojo Kemp and Jeff Badet – all from Florida.

While Kentucky has found great success recruiting throughout the Sunshine State and would hate to see talent from there playing for the Dirty Birds, the Cats have something the Cardinals don’t: Vince Marrow.

Scott has also worked with Neal Brown at three different schools: Kentucky, Texas Tech and Troy.

His twitter bio still includes the UNC Athletics’ web site link, but it looks like Scott reacted to his new job with… a quote from Zayn Malik? The guy from the once-popular (among teenage girls) boy band One Direction?

Yep, he should fit right in at Louisville.

    Good luck Coach Scott! Maggie, you failed to mention that he was also a player at UK. I believe it was for one season, possibly 2, under Mumme.

      I just scrolled down to post a question asking if it was the same player who was a running back at UK but you have confirmed the answer to that question.

    2. StillBP

      She must have edited it bc it does say he played at Kentucky at the end of the 2nd paragraph

    He and Bobby Blizzard I believe both transferred to UNC.

    Congrats to him. I liked him as a player and coach. Great talent. Disappointed when he left for UNC.

    Bobby Blizzard got off the stationary bike just long enough to transfer, didn’t he?! Ha

    Jumps ship for UNC twice and now coaches at Durville. Where’s all the people talking about cheating spouses and still loving them?
