Satterfield's ties to new Nebraska head coach Matt Rhule were essentially the deciding factor, according to Thamel.
Satterfield was Rhule's offensive coordinator at Temple from 2013-2015, his tight ends coach at Baylor from 2018-2019 and his assistant offensive line coach with the Carolina Panthers in 2020.
Satterfield entered his second season with South Carolina on the hot seat, a place he remained until the very end of this season. He revived his tenure in the last two weeks of the season when the Gamecock offense shined in back-to-back wins over top-10 teams in Tennessee and Clemson.
South Carolina totaled more than a 1,000 yards of total offense in its last two weeks of the regular season and averaged 510 offensive yards per game in those wins.
The Gamecocks were No. 9 in total offense in the SEC this year. South Carolina ranked No. 13 in total offense in the SEC in Satterfield's first year as play-caller in 2021.
