Purdue has officially announced Jeff Brohm as its new head coach.
The deal will be for six years, pending approval by Purdue’s board of trustees.
“We were fortunate to meet with many talented coaches from around the country during our search, and Jeff’s name was one that rose to the top early in the process,” Purdue athletic director Mike Bobinski said in a news release. “He is a coach who already has achieved tremendous success and, at the same time, has incredible upside. His reputation and record of accomplishment as an innovative offensive coach and developer of quarterbacks is second to none. That pedigree, combined with his commitment to developing the complete student-athlete and doing so with integrity makes him a perfect fit for Purdue University. I am extremely excited to have Jeff as our head football coach.”
Brohm went 30-10 in three seasons at Western Kentucky, winning Conference USA titles in both 2015 and 2016. The Hilltoppers beat Louisiana Tech on Saturday to win the 2016 championship.
While at Western Kentucky, the Hilltoppers have averaged at least 44 points per game in each of his three seasons.
Purdue will hold a press conference at 3 p.m. ET Monday to introduce Brohm.
