WKU football coach Bobby Petrino is bringing another former Louisville Cardinal to the Hill. Petrino will introduce his new offensive and defensive coordinators Wednesday afternoon at a news conference on campus.

Former U of L quarterback and offensive coordinator Jeff Brohm will be put in charge of the WKU offense. Brohm comes to Bowling Green after serving as offensive coordinator at Alabama-Birmingham.

Brohm is a Louisville native who played quarterback at U of L in the early 90s and played eight seasons in the NFL.

Nick Holt will be introduced Wednesday afternoon as WKU’s new defensive coordinator. Holt played linebacker at the University of Pacific in the 80s, and has been a defensive coordinator for Southern California and Washington. He also coached at Louisville.

Petrino announced seven new assistant coach hirings yesterday, including four with U of L connections.
