Louisville hired Purdue's sideline boss Jeff Brohm as its next head coach, the school announced Thursday.

Brohm's contract with the Cardinals is expected to be for six years and worth roughly $35 million, sources told ESPN's Chris Low.

A Louisville native, Brohm will return to his alma mater where he previously enjoyed a playing career. He also spent time as an assistant on the Cardinals' staff from 2003-2008.

Brohm will replace Scott Satterfield, who departed for Cincinnati earlier this week. Satterfield compiled a 25-24 record over four seasons with the Cardinals.

The 51-year-old has spent the last six years as the Boilermakers' head coach. He's posted a winning record in each of his last two seasons while holding a 36-34 mark overall during his Purdue tenure.

Brohm also enjoyed success during a three-year stretch as Western Kentucky's head coach with the Hilltoppers posting a 30-10 mark under him.

Louisville went 7-5 in 2022 and is set to take on Cincinnati in the Fenway Bowl on Dec. 17.
