Jeff Brohm more likely to stick with Purdue than take Tennessee job, report says

Despite an earlier report that Purdue coach Jeff Brohm would take the head coaching job at Tennessee, it’s looking more and more likely he’ll be staying with the Boilermakers.

In addition to Brohm being out recruiting for Purdue on Wednesday and telling recruits he would be staying in West Lafayette, this report from Football Scoop indicates he is more likely to get a raise or extension form his current program.

The chatter from coaches across the land over the past two hours has been that Jeff Brohm is more likely to agree to a new contract at Purdue than to jump to Tennessee at this time.

Even if Tennessee hadn’t come calling, Brohm was likely due for a raise anyway given his success in his first season with Purdue. The Boilermakers went 6-6 and are bowl eligible for the first time in five years.

Football Scoop additionally reports that Tennessee would pivot to NC State coach Dave Doeren if Brohm were to rebuff the Volunteers. While not as splashy a hire, Doeren has built the Wolfpack into a respectable program, most recently finishing 8-4.

With all that said, none of this is set in stone. Tennessee might up its offer or someone could have a change of heart. We won’t know for sure until every coaching vacancy is filled for next season.
