On Wednesday night, Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm announced his intentions to remain with the Boilermakers after flirting with Louisville. The Cardinals fired former head coach Bobby Petrino during the season and were seen as the favorites to land Brohm before his announcement.

Brohm, whose alma mater is Louisville, said he thinks it's important to finish the building process he started at Purdue two years ago. In two seasons as the team's head coach, Brohm led the Boilermakers to two 6-6 seasons and one bowl win.

Most thought Brohm would leave Purdue for his alma mater, but Brohm shocked the college football world with his announcement Wednesday night.

Louisville fans took the news especially hard. One alleged Louisville fan burned Brohm's brother's No. 12 jersey.

Brohm's brother, Brian, also played for Louisville and currently serves as Purdue's co-offensive coordinator.

Not a good look for Louisville fans. Meanwhile, the school will now re-open the coaching search.
