Louisville fans were crushed four years ago Jeff Brohm turned down the chance to become the team’s head coach, but in the end they seem to have gotten their wish.
Brohm is finalizing a deal to become the next head coach at Louisville, ESPN’s Chris Low reports. The deal is worth about $35 million over six seasons.
Hiring came to Louisville a long time ago. Brohm was the Cardinals quarterback in the 1990s. He was the school’s top pick to replace Bobby Petrino after the 2018 season. However, Brohm has only finished his second season as head coach. of Purdue at the time. He didn’t want to leave the show quickly, so he turned down Louisville.
Louisville then hired Scott Satterfield, who finished 25-24 in four seasons with the Cardinals. Satterfield on Monday was appointed as the new head coach at Cincinnati, where he will replace Luke Fickell. Now he is dealing with an extremely awkward bowl game situation.
Brohm led Purdue to a 36-34 record during his six seasons there. The vibrant city team won 9-4 and won the Music City Bowl last year. They will face LSU in the Citrus Bowl on January 2.
Louisville fans were so angry when Brohm turned down the job in 2018 that many of them cross the line to express their disappointment. However, it seems only a matter of time before Brohm returns to his alma mater.
