Petrino adds Brohm to new staff

New Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino has made his second addition to his new staff.

Former Cardinal quarterback Jeff Brohm has accepted an offer to become a Cardinals assistant. He will join Greg Nord, who was been a member of the Louisville coaching staff for the past eight years.

Brohm, who spent last season serving as the Louisville Fire's head coach, should be a perfect fit for Petrino's pass happy, high-octane offense. Kentucky and Tennessee have also recently attempted to have Brohm join their coaching units.

A Louisville native, Brohm played at Trinity High School, the University of Louisville, six plus seasons in the National Football League and in the XFL. He won a state championship at Trinity in 1988 before starting three years for the Cardinals. He played for the 49ers, Chargers, Broncos, Buccaneers, and Browns in the NFL. As the XFL's top-rated passer, Brohm was named to the XFL All-League team.

Brohm played for the Cardinals from 1989-1993. He was the starting quarterback for the 1992 and 1993 squads. He lead the program to a 18-7 victory over Michigan State in the 1993 Liberty Bowl and was named the bowls Offensive MVP.

Brohm's youngest brother, Brian is a highly-rated quarterback for Trinity High School in Louisville. Brian, who guided Trinity to the 4A Kentucky State Championship in 2001 and 2002, is all ready receiving heavy attention from Louisville, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Kentucky.
