Purdue Boilermakers head coach Jeff Brohm is the front-runner to become the next Louisville Cardinals head coach, according to Stadium Network’s Brett McMurphy. Brohm was born in Louisville, Kentucky.
Brohm is in his second-season, as the Boilermakers head coach. Presently, the team is 5-5 after losing to the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Saturday.
As the Purdue head coach, he is 12-11 in 23 games. In order for the Cardinals to get their No. 1 choice, he’ll have to get buyout the remaining contract with the Boilermakers.
The 47-year-old signed a contract extension with the Boilermakers following his first season at the school in 2017.
Brohm has five-years experience as a head coach in college football. Besides being the Boilermakers head coach, he also spent three seasons as the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers head coach.
The person he actually replaced with the Hilltoppers was Petrino, who went 8-4 with the team in 2013.
With the Hilltoppers, he went 30-10 in 40 games. However, with the Boilermakers, he has gone just 12-11 in 23 games.
In April 2018, he received a two-year contract extension by the Boilermakers. With the extension, he had a seven-year, $28 million deal with the school.
In 2020, he is slated to make $4 million at the school. In addition, his contract was expected to reach $4.5 million in the final year of his contract in 2024.
“That’s what it’s intended to be, not only to Jeff and his staff but people that might be looking to join our program,” Athletic Director Mike Bobinski said of the continued commitment with the extension. “If they’re wondering or not if we’re serious about keeping a top-flight coach here at Purdue, we’ve tried to move in that direction here again.
“That’s the goal for sure. We want Jeff to know and others to know that we intend to build this thing and Jeff is the right guy to build it.”
