Purdue has done its part to make sure Jeff Brohm stays in West Lafayette for the long term, as the school has announced a contract extension for the Boilermakers coach.

Originally signed to a six-year deal back in 2016, which would have run until the 2022 season, Purdue has added two years to Brohm’s deal, which now runs thru the 2024 season.

“This extension is a reflection of how pleased we are with Jeff’s leadership of our football program,” Purdue vice president and director of intercollegiate athletics Mike Bobinski said in a statement. “He has brought renewed energy to our campus, revived our fan base and alumni, and made Purdue relevant once again in the college football landscape. With the success of last season as a foundation, we have tremendous optimism about the future of Purdue football.”

Purdue went 7-6 in Brohm’s first season and won the Foster Farms Bowl. The Boilermaker coach offered up his own comments to the news.

“From my first conversation with Mitch Daniels, Mike Berghoff and Mike Bobinski, it was apparent that there was a commitment to rebuilding this football program, and I am honored to be Purdue’s head coach. We have all the resources necessary for success, and I promise that my staff and I will continue to work tirelessly to build a championship-caliber program. My family and I love West Lafayette, and we look forward to being part of the Purdue family and this community for years to come.”
