Purdue Football Coaching Search: Baylor to Interview Jeff Brohm

Another suitor has entered the race for one of Purdue’s top targets.

Pat Forde of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Jeff Brohm will be interviewed for the coaching job at Baylor. This is of course after the recent scandal at Baylor involving Art Briles. How will this impact Purdue and their search? At this point it’s tough to say but I would suspect that Brohm would at least listen. He’d be silly not to. If nothing else this could force Purdue to pay more for Brohm if he truly is the man they want to hire.

Our hope here is that if Brohm is the guy Purdue wants he decides he wants to stay in the midwest and that things at Baylor are still a bit too toxic for him to walk into. Seeing as how Brohm is from the midwest I do expect that to be a factor in his decision. As a football coach you always want to recruit in an area your familiar with and for Brohm the midwest is his wheelhouse. This is a fluid situation so it’s definitely something to keep an eye on.
