Following another stellar performance, the 6-4, 220-pound Brohm told the local media during the Cardinals post-game press conference, his decision.
"I'm definitely expecting to be back (next season)," Brohm said. "So if anyone I talking about that, I expect to be back."
That news made Louisville coach Bobby Petrino a very happy man when he entered the press room moments after Brohm had broken the big news.
"I hadn't heard that he had said that," a giddy Petrino said when asked by a reporter about his reaction to Brohm's statements. "I was pretty sure that he would come back. He needs another year of staying healthy."
Brohm has led Louisville to a #6 BCS national ranking and a share of the program's first Big East title this season. Though he missed two games earlier this season with a thumb injury, Brohm has made a strong return, throwing for nearly 2,800 yards and 16 touchdowns, while completing 63 percent of his passes with only five interceptions.
"He's a great player," Petrino said. "And he's as tough as they come."
