Louisville officials are fairly confident that they’ll be bringing current Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm back to his home state.
On Tuesday, Louisville athletic director Vince Tyra reportedly met with Brohm in Central Indiana to discuss the possibility of the former Cardinals quarterback coming home, according to Cardinal Authority. There was no decision made, but Louisville reportedly gave Brohm a mid-week “deadline” to make his decision.
Early Wednesday morning, the Louisville Courier Journal reported that current Cardinals football recruits are being told that Brohm will “more than likely” be the next head coach. According to the report, quarterback recruit Jaden Johnson from Memphis, Tennessee said he’s been kept informed by Tyra regarding the coaching search.
Johnson told the Louisville Courier Journal that it’s “more than likely,” Brohm will take over in Louisville.
The report also states that the parent of one recruit said that it “looks like everything and everyone is pointing fingers towards Brohm coming in.”
Whether that’s Tyra’s wishful thinking or if there’s something fueling those beliefs remains to be seen. Regardless, a decision should be coming shortly, one way or the other.
