Fitzpatrick took to Twitter to criticize his former head coach in the wake of this news.

"Last thing I will say. When the South Carolina job rumors were floating around, he MADE US tweet about how well he was treating us good, but wouldn’t tell his players that he was leaving in person! He was NEVER honest with us!" he wrote on Twitter.

Satterfield reportedly signed a six-year deal with the Cincinnati program. He will replace Luke Fickell, who recently left to became the next head coach of the Wisconsin Badgers.
