Purdue’s Jeff Brohm Honest When Asked About Louisville Job

Former Louisville quarterback and current Purdue coach Jeff Brohm is preparing to enter his sixth season at the helm with the Boilermakers this fall, but that hasn’t stopped reporters from asking him about the potential for him to return to his alma mater in the future as a head coach.

When Louisville fired Bobby Petrino in 2018, Brohm was considered a leading candidate for the position. However, after much deliberation, Brohm elected to return to Purdue, where he has remained ever since.

The loyalty that Brohm showed Purdue surprised many, as most coaches jump at the chance to return to their alma mater to leave the program. While that’s something that Brohm certainly considered, he didn’t feel that the time was right to make the move back in 2018.

“OK, those are all good questions on the Louisville job,” Brohm said as he addressed questions from those in attendance at the Louisville Flaglet High School alumni association meeting on Wednesday.
