At the conclusion of the season, Purdue Boilermakers head coach Jeff Brohm was asked about being the Louisville Cardinals head coach. He is the front-runner to receive the position.

In the Boilermakers season-finale, Purdue won 28-21 over the Indiana Hoosiers. The team became Bowl eligible with the win, as they finished the regular-season with a 6-6 record.

“I want Louisville to do what’s best for them,” Brohm said after Purdue’s 28-21 win at Indiana, which made the Boilers bowl-eligible at 6-6. “I’m a fan. But right now, I’m the coach at Purdue. This is where I want to be and I like it here.”

The Cardinals fired former coach Bobby Petrino in mid-November following a loss to the Syracuse Orange. Lorenzo Ward was named the interim head coach to finish the season.

Brohm as born in Louisville, Kentucky. He also attended and graduated from the University of Louisville.

His alma mater is also where his coaching career began.

The ties go deeper than that. He attended the same high school as Athletic Director Vince Tyra. His father Oscar and his brother Brian also attended Louisville.

At Purdue, he is 13-12 as the Boilermakers head coach. He is also 43-22 as a college football head coach, including a stop with the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

The Boilermakers up-and-down season ended with a one-game streak. It snapped a two-game losing streak to the Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Wisconsin Badgers.

Purdue lost the first three games of the season. They then won four straight games to have a 4-3 mark. The Boilermakers then lost three of its last five games.
