Jeff Brohm grew up in Louisville and played four years football in Louisville in the early 1
990s and returned there after the end of his professional play career to spend six seasons as assistant coach under Bobby Petrino and Steve Kragthorpe. His ties with the state and his history at school, plus the success he has had as head coach in Western Kentucky and Purdue, made Brohm the ideal candidate to replace Petrino, kicked by Louisville earlier this month.
Brohm met with Louis Vince Tyra on Tuesday, and it was even incorrectly reported by Dan Dakich that Brohm would leave Purdue and make the move to Louisville. You can understand why Louisville fans were disappointed to learn Wednesday that Brohm has decided to stay at Purdue after gaining a good fat gain and some performance incentives in a compensation package that exceeded Louisville’s offer. Disappointment is natural! Going to a high school bombardment, on the other hand, falls well beyond what would normally be considered as the healthy supply of sports-based disappointment. Alas:
Trinity officials were reported to the police by a threat to school because Jeff Brohm decided to stay at Purdue.
While police investigated hot classes were suspended and offices closed on Thursday, November 29th. 19659006] Trinity is a high school in Louisville, and it is the alma mater of a Jeff Brohm, who graduated in 1989. Good to see Cardinals fans handle this coaching search as reasonable people and not at all to boast maniacs. If this were not just a few children‘s way of getting out of a biology degree. Still a horrible idea!
