LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville is finalizing a deal to hire Purdue's Jeff Brohm as its head coach, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement and an announcement from the schools had not been finalized. The university scheduled a news conference for Thursday "regarding the football program's leadership."
Brohm, 51, would replace Scott Satterfield, who abruptly left the Cardinals on Monday after four seasons to become Cincinnati's coach. Brohm, a Louisville native and former Cardinals quarterback, is 66-44 lifetime as a head coach and 36-34 at Purdue, which he guided to the Big Ten Conference West title this season before the Boilermakers (8-5) lost to No. 2 Michigan in the conference championship game.
