Western Kentucky football coach Jeff Brohm will interview on Sunday for the head coaching vacancy at Baylor

WKU Insider has confirmed with multiple sources that Western Kentucky University football coach Jeff Brohm will interview with Baylor on Sunday. The Toppers won the C-USA title game on Saturday.

Fresh off winning back-to-back Conference USA championships, Western Kentucky University football coach Jeff Brohm is expected to interview for the head coaching position at Baylor on Sunday.

WKU Insider has confirmed with multiple sources that Brohm will meet with the Bears.

The 45-year-old Brohm is also being courted by Purdue and several sources expect Cincinnati to reach out to Brohm if the school fires Tommy Tuberville. Sources close to Brohm said returning to WKU for a fourth year is "certainly a viable option."

A former assistant under Bobby Petrino at Louisville and Western Kentucky, Brohm spent two years at Illinois as the quarterbacks coach under Ron Zook and then one season as the associate head coach for Petrino at WKU.

In his first season as a head coach, Brohm led Western Kentucky to an 8-5 record and a win on the Bahamas Bowl. Last season, the Toppers finished 12-2 - winning the Miami Beach Bowl - and cracked the Associated Press top 25.

With a new QB this season, WKU hasn't skipped a beat. The Toppers finished the regular-season at 9-3 with two of the losses coming to SEC opponents - Vanderbilt and No. 1 Alabama. A former Louisville and NFL quarterback, Brohm's offensive philosophies have the Hilltoppers ranked 13th nationally in total offense (505.8) and eighth in passing (329.8).
