A pretty bizarre turn of events in the past few days with the University of Louisville football coaching staff.
With rumor and speculation running wild, the C-J asked for a clarification of offensive coordinator Jeff Brohm’s status today and got a firm, definite, “We don’t know.”
A statement from U of L coach Steve Kragthorpe, as provided by the school’s sports information office: “We are evaluating the entire staff,” Kragthorpe said. “We hired Larry Slade and Brent Guy on the defensive side and Jay Johnson on the offensive side. At this point in time those specific coaching assignments have yet to be finalized.”
It’s unusual, to say the least. One of the most-asked questions of the postseason is, “Who was actually calling the majority of the plays this season?” I’ve heard contradicting answers, and honestly, unless you had on a headset this season, you’re not going to be in position to know. So no need to fuel further fire with info that isn’t first-hand.
Regardless, if I were Brohm, I’d probably be packing my bags, or at least getting ready for a Sabbatical. I doubt Jeff needs the money. And I’m pretty sure he doesn’t need the headache.
