After another round of #BrohmWatch, Coach Jeff Brohm is leaving Purdue to return home as the head coach of Louisville. This leaves Purdue with a spot to fill for its upcoming Citrus Bowl matchup with LSU. As reported by Tom Dienhart (@TomDienhart1) on Twitter, Purdue is filling Jeff’s spot with his brother and co-offensive coordinator / QB coach, Brian.

Brian Brohm has stepped in for Jeff before at Purdue, leading the Boilermakers to a 24-20 victory against Iowa in 2020 when Jeff was sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19. It is not clear what Brian will do after the conclusion of this season, as Purdue will be searching for a new permanent hire for the head coaching position.
