    Jeff Brohm, Purdue finalize new deal worth $36.8 million over seven years


    Being wanted as a head coach by other schools is extremely beneficial to one’s wallet. Just ask Jeff Brohm.

    Hot on the heels of his alma mater of Louisville coming after him this offseason, Brohm and Purdue have agreed to a new seven year deal worth a reported $36.8 million, reports the Lafayette Journal & Courier. The school’s board of trustees approved the terms this week and details of the big financial commitment were subsequently released as a result.

    And let’s just say that Brohm won’t be hurting for cash this year as he’s set to make a whopping $6.6 million when factoring in a hefty retention bonus. His salary does dip back down to under $5 million the next few seasons after that but still, that’s a lot of dough to keep the coach in West Lafayette.

    Note that all this comes after reported interest from Tennessee netted him an extension prior to the 2018 campaign and the full court press from Louisville nearly saw him leave the program before deciding to stay put.

    The Journal & Courier also says that Purdue bumped up the assistant salary pool some $380,000 to $4.35 million total this upcoming season as well.

    In what world should the football coach at Purdue be paid nearly the same ($150k difference) as the head coach at Ohio State?

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    Since 2001, of all Big Ten teams, Purdue has the best record against Ohio State. They're 4-8 against Ohio State. And the only reason I picked 2001 is because that's when Jim Tressel started. Pick 2000, and there's another win for Purdue over Ohio State.

    Wisconsin also has 4 wins, but 10 losses. (It would be 8 losses except for 2 conference championship games where Ohio State beat Wisconsin.)
    Penn State has the most number of wins, with 5. 13 losses, though.

    I'm pretty sure Michigan and Indiana have the most number of losses, with 16.
