The coaching carousel is in full swing with a big move that will have major ramifications in the Big Ten as Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm is, according to a report by ESPN, leaving Purdue to accept the same position at Louisville.

Brohm leaves Purdue after six years with the school. He went 66-44 overall, but had his best seasons these past two years when he went 17-9 combined including a Big Ten West division title. Purdue fell to No. 2 Michigan in the conference championship game 43-22.

Prior to Purdue he was the head coach at Western Kentucky for three seasons going a combined 30-10 and winning two C-USA titles. Brohm has led a team in Louisville before in the now defunct AF2 league. He led Louisville in said league for one season and went 2-14.

Brohm is born and raised in Louisville and started at quarterback for the university, graduating in 1994. He spent seven seasons in the NFL and made the school’s ring of honor. He was a coach on the staff at Louisville from 2003-08, serving in a variety of roles on offense.
