Purdue preparing to start spring practice this week
Purdue isn’t wasting time this spring. Jeff Brohm wants his team starting practice early this year.
The Boilermakers will begin their spring football season on February 19, marking the first day of practice during the period. Purdue will then have a 34-day window to complete 15 practices before wrapping up the spring season.
On Monday, Purdue released a hype video as the team prepares for another season. Last year, the Boilers finished on a sour note, losing their final four contests after a 2-0 start with wins over Iowa and Illinois.

Brohm will be entering his fifth season with the Boilermakers. He’s compiled a 19-25 record in four years. After immediately leading Purdue to back-to-back bowl games in 2017 and 2018, the team has had consecutive losing seasons.
During the offseason, Purdue saw some changes to the coaching staff, most notably releasing defensive coordinator Bob Diaco and bringing in Marshall’s Brad Lambert. The Boilermakers also brought back defensive line coach Mark Hagen, who worked on Joe Tiller’s staff over a decade ago.
