Temple's new football coach, Matt Rhule, has promoted Marcus Satterfield to offensive coordinator and hired former Gateway High School coach Terry Smith as the Owls' wideouts coach, according to multiple sources.

Satterfield had been the offensive coordinator at Tennessee-Chattanooga before Rhule hired him as an offensive assistant in December. At the time, Nevada offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich was set to become Temple’s offensive coordinator.  Rolovich, however, backed out of the Owls job on Jan. 9.

The Wolf Pack doubled his salary to around $240, 000 to remain offensive coordinator of the Mountain West Conference school.

Satterfield spent the last four seasons at Tennessee-Chattanooga. He also was the offensive coordinator at Tennessee-Martin for three seasons. Satterfield was a wide receiver and punter at East Tennessee State from 1995-98.

Smith spent the past 11 seasons as the head coach at WPIAL powerhouse Gateway in Monroeville. He also served as the school’s athletic director during the past 10 years.

Smith compiled an impressive 101-30 record at his alma mater.  Smith was also a standout wideout at Penn State in the early 1990s. He was an 11th-round draft pick by the Washington Redskins in 1992.
