WKU football is heading into a new conference with its third head coach in as many seasons.
At a news conference Friday afternoon on campus, Jeff Brohm was introduced as the new Hilltopper head coach. Brohm served last season as WKU’s offensive coordinator under Bobby Petrino, who left this week after 13 months on the Hill to become the coach at Louisville.
Brohm was asked whether he considered going to U of L with Petrino.
“Well, that was obviously always in the discussion, and Coach (Petrino) knew what I wanted," said Brohm, a Louisville native and former star University of Louisville quarterback. "There were some things that came up before this, some opportunities that I had a chance to do."
"We sat down and talked and Coach told me I had a great opportunity to be the (WKU) head football coach if I do things right.”
