Jeff Brohm dismisses Louisville rumors, happy at Purdue
Purdue’s win over Ohio State last weekend only made Louisville boosters salivate more, but Jeff Brohm is dismissing that talk.
Brohm is in his second season at Purdue and looking good now that the Boilermakers have won four in a row following an 0-3 start to the season. He’s on his way to a second straight bowl appearance after going 7-6 last season, which represented a massive turnaround from the 9-39 record Darrell Hazell put up in the previous four seasons.
After Purdue’s practice on Thursday, Brohm dismissed the Louisville talk and said something that will put a smile on the face of Purdue fans.
“I don’t think people realize how good it is here (at Purdue),” Brohm said Thursday, via Purdue’s Rivals site.
Brohm also said he was tired of the questions about Louisville.
Brohm, 47, is from Louisville, played for the Cardinals from 1989-1993, and coached for them from 2003-2008. His dad also played for Louisville, so their roots run deep.
Bobby Petrino, 57, has been at Louisville since 2014 (his second stint there). He went 34-18 over his first four seasons, but without Lamar Jackson, they’re 2-5 this year and there has been talk of him being on the hot seat. Brohm seems focused on what he’s building at Purdue for now and does not seem terribly interested in a return to Louisville at the moment.
