According to FootballScoop, the Purdue Boilermakers have a plan in place in case head coach Jeff Brohm elected to accept the Louisville Cardinals head coaching job when he’s offered it. The Cardinals fired Bobby Petrino earlier this month.

The website says that the Boilermakers officials are working on attempting to keep Brohm. While other officials are working on a plan in case he leaves and they need to replace him.

The Boilermakers signed Brohm to a contract extension in April. They said that the time they were committed to keeping Brohm.

However, his heart could be pulling home, as he was a former Cardinals player. He also was born in Louisville, Kentucky.

Also, he began his head coaching career with the Cardinals.

He is 12-12 with the Boilermakers in his coaching career. He is 5-6 this season.

Brohm is 42-22 in 64 games as a college football coach in five seasons. He also spent three seasons as the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers head coach, where he went 30-10.

The Boilermakers are even willing to give Brohm another extension, according to FootballScoop. However, they will execute a search should they need to once Brohm gives them an answer.

Among those candidates will be Troy Trojans head coach Neal Brown, Alabama Crimson Tide offensive analyst Butch Jones, Louisiana Tech Bulldogs head coach Skip Holtz, Clemson Tigers co-offensive coordinator and running backs coach Tony Elliott, Maryland Terrapins interim head coach Matt Canada, and Memphis Tigers head coach Mike Norvell.

Canada could be in the mix to be the Maryland Terrapins permanent head coach. He has been the team’s interim head coach this season.
