Brohm turns down Louisville job, will stay at Purdue

By  | 

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue coach Jeff Brohm told athletic director Mike Bobinski on Wednesday that he intends to keep his job with the Boilermakers rather than take the head coaching job at his alma mater, Louisville.

Bobinski confirmed the decision in a text message to The Associated Press.

Since Louisville fired Bobby Petrino 2½ weeks ago, speculation ran rampant about Brohm returning to his hometown. Instead, he turned down the job.

Brohm is 13-12 in two seasons and has taken the Boilermakers to back-to-back bowl games for the first time since 2011-12. He beat rival Indiana both years and pulled off one of this season's most shocking upsets in October with a 29-point rout of then-No. 2 Ohio State.
