Purdue has officially added another year to Jeff Brohm’s contract.
On Friday morning, the Purdue University Board of Trustees approved a one-year contract extension for the head football coach, keeping him in West Lafayette through the 2025 season, according to a report from the Journal and Courier. Financial details of the extension were not immediately available.
After leading Purdue to back-to-back bowl appearances and a few key victories in each of the last two seasons, Brohm has received interest from several schools looking for a head coach. In 2017, Tennessee courted Brohm after firing Butch Jones. Last winter, it was Louisville hoping to bring the hometown hero back to his alma mater.
Brohm, however, decided to remain in West Lafayette and continue to raise the bar at Purdue.
Though his overall record may not be overly appealing — 13-13 in two years — Brohm has led the Boilermakers to back-to-back bowl games and has notched wins over three ranked opponents, including No. 2 Ohio State. He’s also a perfect 2-0 in the rivalry game against Indiana.
Brohm is also responsible for bringing freshman All-American Rondale Moore to West Lafayette and has inked a top 25 recruiting class, one of the best in Purdue history. Because of his success on the field and the talent coming to West Lafayette, Purdue has sold 2,500 more season tickets for the 2019 season.
Purdue recently wrapped up spring practice last Saturday with its spring game. The Boilermakers open up the 2019 season on the road against Nevada.
