Louisville has landed some offensive line help for next season in the form of University of Florida graduate transfer T.J. McCoy.
McCoy is eligible immediately. He made 13 career starts at center during his time with the Gators.
“After meeting with coach Satterfield and coach Ledford and witnessing their passion and commitment to building players and the program, I have decided to transfer and use my last year of eligibility at the University of Louisville,” McCoy wrote in his announcement letter.

A three-star recruit in the 2015 class, McCoy signed with NC State, but transferred to Florida in order to be closer to his ailing father. He redshirted in 2015 before cracking the starting lineup late in the 2016 season.
McCoy started nine games for the Gators in 2017, but lost his starting job under first-year head coach Dan Mullen this past season. He played in only four games in 2018.
At the very least, McCoy brings a wealth of experience with him to Louisville. The Cardinals are looking to rebuild after going 2-10 in 2018 under Bobby Petrino and interim coach Lorenzo Ward.
Satterfield was hired away from Appalachian State this offseason to turn things around.
