He deserved it.

Brian Brohm was named the National Coordinator of the Week, after stepping in as the Interim Head Coach for the week and calling plays in lieu of Jeff Brohm being absent due to Covid-19 Protocols.

Brian lead the Boilers to a come from behind win, beating the Hawkeyes, 24 to 20 with a solid second half.

While Jeff is back this week, I personally loved the way Brian called the game last week. The run game struggled in the first half, but he stuck with it. The 10 man rotation on the offensive line (something I never thought I would say) wore on the Iowa defensive line.

In the 4th quarter we controlled the trenches and I tip my cap to Brian for not abandoning that run game, which is something I believe we have done in years past.

Not only that, but leading a comeback is no small feat. Especially when you are looking across the field at a Head Coach that has had over 160 wins in his caeer.

Congrats, Coach!
