Jeff Brohm, off bowl-winning debut, gets new contract

Purdue football coach Jeff Brohm has received a two-year contract extension through the 2024 season after guiding the Boilermakers to a bowl victory in his first season.

The school’s board of trustees on Thursday approved the revised contract, which will increase Brohm’s salary to $3.8 million for the 2018 season.

Brohm’s name surfaced briefly in Tennessee’s coaching search last year.

Brohm would owe Purdue $4.4 million if he takes another job before Dec. 5, and the buyout amount decreases by $1 million every year through Dec. 31, 2024.

A tweet from the University of Toledo’s verified account was taken down Tuesday afternoon after the tweet, which promised to change the school’s mascot to Shrek with 500,000 retweets, started gaining serious traction.

“We’re gonna run that up-tempo offense we saw [at Saturday’s spring game], and we’re gonna get the Blackshirts [defense] back to being Blackshirts. And that’s extremely important,” Moos said, according to the Omaha World-Herald. “You’ve got Urban Meyer and Jim Harbaugh thinking, ‘We better put a little more into that Nebraska game coming up.’ And that’s the way we want it. They’re running a little bit scared right now. And they won’t admit it. We’ll leave that at that.”

Frost’s first Big Ten game as Nebraska’s coach will be against Harbaugh and Michigan on Sept. 22 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in the teams’ first meeting since 2013. Nebraska will visit Ohio State on Nov. 3. Meyer is 3-0 against Nebraska as Ohio State’s coach, and the Buckeyes have averaged 60.3 points in the games and won the past two by a combined score of 118-17. Harbaugh has yet to face Nebraska since he became Michigan’s coach.dolphins_084
