Brohm to be announced as Louisville HC on the 26th

  • Dan Dakich and others reporting

  • Discussion
  • Maybe finally have a coach who can somewhat challenge Clemson.

  • Poor Purdue had to know this day was coming when they hired him, but things were looking up for the first time since Joe Tiller had Brees and Orton.

  • Good move for Louisville. They love Brohm here.

    Of course, they loved Petrino coming back too.

    They could potentially hire Jim Chaney and try to recapture some of the Joe Tiller magic.

  • Rondale Moore's hardship transfer back home to Louisville should be following soon.

    U would love that idk why though cause Kirby is gonna replace him with someone that runs the offense the way Kirby wants it.

    Ouch. I didn't realize he was from Louisville. He is a huge threat for Purdue and would be a big loss.

    Rondale's grandmother "cough, cough, cough....I'm not feeling so well...cough..."

    That's the entire reason he went to Purdue. The Brohm's are the first family of football at Trinity HS in Louisville and that's where Moore attended.

    The kid could've went anywhere and he followed Brohm.

    I would mostly just be be concerned that Pittman would go with him.

    And Kirby would probably go hire Dan Enos, which would probably be an improvement.

    Dude was my neighbor when we lived in Louisville..good kid and I agree, he may transfer back home

  • Bad move IMO

    I can see that. It is possible that he could have held off for a bigger job, but I understand the attraction to coming home. Hopefully for him, the Louisville fan base has some patience. It's a total rebuild. They are horrible at just about every position.

    Nope! Clemson is in a different league for the for see able future than Louisville.

    Funny how Louisville has fallen. 4-5 ago Louisville was the cats meow in college Basketball and Football.

    Why so though? Hold out for better job?

    Perhaps he could, but always respect a guy going to coach his alma mater. Much like how I can’t get too mad if a recruit (like Emory) chooses to stay home.

    Pitt may leave Athens,ut his wife willNOT. Pitt ain't going anywhere. Enos,Reidor the Ghost of Bill Walsh,would,just like JC, run an O within the parameters set by KS. Ask him and he will tell you.

    The "bigger job" thing makes sense to everyone ... until you imagine yourself standing in this particular guy's shoes for a moment. More specifically, in his shoes in the context of how deep his family ties run there over the course of multiple generations. The "City of Louisville's First Family" of football.

    Pretty clear read on the matter, for context:

    I'd rather coach in the Big 10 West than ACC Atlantic.

    Northwestern just won that division. Purdue under Brohm could do that.

    People need to realize that this is Jim Chaney’s offense and stop trying to say it’s all because of Kirby setting some “parameters”. Bama’s offense under Kiffin and under Locksley look totally different and they were both totally different from the guys before them. Kirby isn’t more of a control freak than Saban.
