Western Kentucky coach Jeff Brohm is quickly becoming a popular name.
The coach who guided the Hilltoppers to their second straight Conference USA Championship on Saturday reportedly met with Baylor on Sunday. Purdue has also offered Brohm its head coaching position, according to Chad Bishop of WKBO-TV in Bowling Green, Ky.
Whether Brohm is interested in the job has yet to be determined. But it appears that the Boilermakers are among a few suitors. Cincinnati coach Tommy Tuberville stepped down as head coach on Sunday and the university has shown interest in Brohm filling the vacancy. Scout.com’s Jody Demling reported early Sunday that the Bearcats had reached out to Brohm.
Can confirm that Cincinnati has already reached out to Western Kentucky coach Jeff Brohm.

Yahoo Sports’ Pat Forde reported on Saturday that Brohm was one of three candidates expected to interview for the head coaching job at Baylor. It has not been reported how many candidates have interviewed for the job at Purdue, but it has been reported that former LSU head coach Les Miles is no longer a candidate. USA Today’s Dan Wolken also reported this week that Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck isn’t expected to interview for the job.
The Boilermakers went 9-33 in three-plus seasons under Darrell Hazell, leading to his dismissal on Oct. 16. The athletic department’s search for a new coach has proceeded since, but it hasn’t resulted in a deal yet. Brohm has reportedly been offered. Now, it is just a matter of if he accepts it.
