Coach Satterfield graduated from Plainfield High School while playing for Coach Bullington and graduated from Wabash College, playing for Coach Mac Petty.  Coach Satterfield teaches in the Mathematics department at HSE and lives in Fishers with his wife Deb.  They are proud parents of Brooke, Nolan, and Blair.

“We are excited to have Coach Satterfield as our next head girls’ basketball coach.  Brian is a Royal, in the process of hiring a new coach it was clear his passion for Hamilton Southeastern and for coaching basketball.  We spend a great deal of time in the athletic department talking about Family First.  I believe Brian has made a decision that focused on what is best for his family.  Brian is excited for the new challenge and we are excited for our program.”

“A great coach is organized, prepared, knowledgeable, self-aware, and committed to the development of individual players and the success of the overall team.  Starting with the 21-22 season, our girls basketball program will be led by a coach who has a proven history of exhibiting all of these qualities and more, and that coach is Brian Satterfield.  We are excited for our players, our families, and our community as we begin the next chapter in HSE Girls Basketball.   We have a winning tradition with the Program, both on the court and off, with a State Championship in 2019 and countless success stories involving the young women who have come through the Program.  With his demonstrated success with the HSE Boys’ Basketball Program since 2001, we feel confident that Coach Brian Satterfield is the right person to continue the tradition of excellence in Royals’ Girls’ Basketball.  We look forward to watching Coach Satterfield bring his many talents to the Girls’ Program as he builds on the foundation of success established by Coach Chris Huppenthal and his predecessors.”
