Brohm gone?

Recommended Posts

Still not the same as saying he's not going.  So this is probably going to look pretty bad in a couple days.

Between Brohm being more direct in his comments and Louisville basically stating they're going to be cheapskates, it is definitely appearing that Louisville will not pull a Moos here.

I still think Brohm is gone.  Louisville will want to get back to being relevant especially with Kentucky having a good year.  No way they want the "little brother " role for football and Mens basketball.   They need a splash hire

Nothing has been said that Louisville will go through with the measures necessary. People are correct that this parallels the Frost hire, however, where Moos and the Nebraska administration went through considerable lengths to satisfy Frost's needs, Louisville is not.

 

If you spend that much to fire a guy, you'd better have the money to hire someone better. If you can't show Brohm the money and give him contractual promises he gets the time needed, then it's a waste of time.

 

My gut tells me this is this year's Tennessee.

I think Brohm stays at Purdue.  

 

Take into account the AD at Louisville hiring Petrino back in the first place.  Maybe Brohm doesn't feel comfortable with the guy in charge.

 

Add in Louisville seemingly balking at his demands and it could be that he stays put.

 

I don't think it will be a Tennessee deal though.  I think the coach from Troy or App State would do well there to get them competitive.

 

Edit:  I forgot that the AD was replaced already.  Nonetheless, I think Brohm stays in West Lafayette

I think it is going to take big money to move him.  Purdue is a better job.

Not so sure about that. Louisville has the emotional connections for him. That being said, I think he is starting to make waves with Purdue and so why leave now. The Big Ten West is for the taking and 2-3 more years and he could set himself up for a much better job.

 

I dont think Louisville is leaps and bounds better than Purdue... but do think it is slightly better mainly because of more recent success.

 

Neither are great jobs in my opinion.

I think he is 50/50 and right now is waiting for the best deal from both schools.  If they are even...he is gone.  

Reports are saying that he is demanding more from Louisville for him to leave.  So I would guess even makes him stay.

Interesting...I suppose he understands how much power he has right now so he is gripping those Villi nuts as hard as he can right now.  Might as well see if he can get 7 years, 6 million a year with as low as a buyout as possible in case he wants to bolt.

Those are the names speculated, and indeed would be good hires, but if Lousiville doesn't make things right with Brohm, would they for someone like Brown? 

 

I could be totally wrong, these coaching changes always seem to have so many twists and turns, but it doesn't seem like Louisville has their ducks in a row here.

Frost went through the same struggle, lucky us.

Scott decided to shun his alma mater and instead stay at his current university? In all honesty this is all about leadership. Brohm will either go to Louisville the next go around in a 3 or 4 years after the AD etc is fired and starts new or he is waiting for a bigger gig that will be open in a year or two.

No, Frost went through the same struggle of deciding to go back to his alma mater or stay at the school where he built something and recruited players to.  My concern about whether Frost would come to UNL wasn't if he would go to Florida or some other job that was open.  My concern was his sense of loyalty to the players and the program he created at UCF might cause him to stay at UCF.  I believe TO recently confirmed that was the case.  We got lucky that Frost felt industrious and came home to rebuild his alma mater.  Also, I wanted UCF to go undefeated so Frost didn't feel he left something undone.  I don't know anything about UL's leadership and whether that was a concern for Brohm.  Based on what I saw about Brohm's character, I thought he might stay at Purdue and I believe he stays for more than a few years.  If Brohm accomplishes something significant at Purdue before that, he could leave.

money always talks, I have a hard time believing if an elite job comes open he would turn it down. Perhaps they wouldnt let him bring his entire staff etc. Who really knows the ins and outs but Louisville>Purdue in the world of public perception.

Dude drives a 2005 Honda Accord.  I don't think money is a big motivator for him.

he gets $15,000 a year for a car stipend. Odd that he would prefer to not use that money at all and have it go to waste.

I wonder if Brohm staying at Purdue had more to do with The Louisville AD department being a mess with the Adidas issues.  I know that's more with the BB program, but it may spill over into other major sports within the AD department.
