Former University of Cincinnati Outstanding Basketball Player Kenny Satterfield has been named Head Basketball Coach at Hughes High School. Hughes is across from the UC campus in Clifton.
Hughes announced the hiring on Wednesday evening.
Satterfield, 40, played for UC in the 1999-2000 and 2000-01 seasons. In the 1999-2000 season, he averaged nine points and a team high of 5.4 assists per game for the Bearcats, who finished the season 29-4.
The Bearcats missed a potential national championship bid this year when National Player of the Year Kenyon Martin broke his leg during the conference tournament. UC lost in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
After the 2001 season, Satterfield signed up for the draft and spent the next two seasons in the National Basketball Association, playing for Denver and Philadelphia. He averaged 4.3 points and 2.3 assists in a total of 75 games.
For the past few years he has been an AAU coach and in 2017 led a team to a national AAU championship. He has been a full-time teaching assistant in the Oak Hills School District since September.
