After considering the open position at the University of Louisville Jeff Brohm will remain as head football coach at Purdue.
Brohm had reportedly met with the University of Louisville on Tuesday night to discuss the open head coaching position with the Cardinals. Louisville fired coach Bobby Petrino earlier this month. Brohm is a Louisville native who both played and was an assistant coach at U of L.
Brohm released this statement:
“This has been a very difficult and emotional decision for me and my family. We are extremely happy at Purdue and thankful for the opportunity to lead this program. After intense and thorough discussion, I believe it is important to finish the building process we have begun and honor the commitment I made to our football program, players, and recruits. While going home was very appealing and meaningful to me, the timing was not ideal. I believe that remaining at Purdue is the right thing to do, and I am excited for the challenges ahead.”
Purdue is 13-12 in Brohm’s two seasons and is awaiting to see their bowl destination here in 2018.
