Brohm heads to Louisville after being Purdue’s head coach since 2017. He compiled a 36-34 record in West Lafayette and took the team to 3 bowl games, including two wins.
Brohm led Purdue to 8 wins this season and an appearance in the B1G title game against Michigan. The Boilermakers fell to the Wolverines 43-22. Purdue still has one more game remaining, a matchup with LSU in the Citrus Bowl.
Expectations should be high in Louisville after the Cardinals won seven games this season. Let’s see if Brohm can live up to that big contract.
