Louisville offensive line coach Jack Bicknell leaving for North Carolina job
Louisville's coaching staff isn't done, yet.
Just as the Cardinals filled all of their assistant coaching spots before spring football, another has opened. Offensive line coach Jack Bicknell is leaving to take the same position at North Carolina, according to Bruce Feldman of the Athletic. The Courier Journal has confirmed Feldman's report, as well.
Bicknell, who coached the offensive line at Louisville for one year, helped the Cardinals have one of the best front lines in the ACC last season. He leaves Louisville as the Cardinals are starting spring practice (it began on Monday).
Louisville will now be in search of a new offensive line coach as Bicknell leaves for another spot in the conference. It will be the third offensive line coach in Satterfield's time at Louisville with Dwayne Ledford taking the first two seasons before leaving for the NFL.
Spring practice will carry on as planned, though, as the Cardinals look to replace Bicknell. The Cardinals do have a former offensive lien coach on staff, as they just added Nic Cardwell as the tight ends coach, but he was an offensive line coach at App State.
Regardless, Louisville will have a spot to fill on its staff in the middle of spring practice.
