Tennessee has been poor on offense much of the year, but that has a lot more to do with the pieces at hand than the OC. Helton should be able to step in and win right away at WKU. He was the OC on Brohm's 2014-2015 teams.

It's reportedly Brohm's dream job. If they can find the money, and I suspect they can, he's gone.


He could replace Urban Meyer the way he's going.


Maybe, but Louisville has a head start since their job is already open. More importantly, Brohm went 7-6 at Purdue last year and is 5-5 this year so trending the same way. I'm not sure that's the kind of record OSU will go for, even if it is at Purdue.


That record at Purdue is outstanding and more impressive than anything one else in the conference. I think he gets coach of the year.

I can certainly admit when I'm wrong. All the signs pointed toward Brohm and Louisville being a match, and the fact that he was willing to hear them out means there was some possibility there. It would have been an interesting play for sure.

He must be hoping for a bigger job. I've heard his name mentioned for Auburn which I think is ludicrous, but he could just stick at Purdue one more year in the hopes of having a big season. I think they've got a really nice recruiting class for next year lined up.

I think Louisville is reeling right now and is not the plum job it has been in the past. It will be really interesting to see who lands that job. Clearly, whoever it is, has a big rebuilding on his hands.

Couldn't happen to a "nicer" bunch.

As for Auburn, it wouldn't surprise me to see Malzahn gone or at least on his way out. If they lose their bowl game, I think the Aubies will pull the trigger.

Most of us probably would have bet on Brohm returning home to UL like Roy Williams did to UNC. However once UL showed it was willing to push God, Jr. (one Rick Pitino) through the door maybe it then became not quite the cush landing spot it was previously.


Egos are such in Louisville, my SWAG is they do an A&M and throw so much swag at an established P5 coach to get a "name," UL finds someone with a Jimbo-like resume. Thanks to UL, agents of every successful P5 HC will shortly be renegotiating nice raises and extensions just like Brohm got from Purdue.

If Malzahn gets fired, then Auburn is officially a madhouse (if they weren't already). His buyout is $30 million and by some estimates it would take another $30 million to hire a big time coach. I'm not sure what coach would want to take on a job where you win the SEC and then get fired the next year for going 7-5. I'm betting Malzahn is around next year.

Hey outlaw, news flash, they ARE crazy at Auburn. They are currently negotiating down GM's buyout. You don't do that unless something is up.

If the totally unexpected were to happen next year and we upset them, what do you think will happen then? Hell, when we played them last time, they won 38-13 and we're p!ssed they let some guy rush for 138 yards against their defense (Forte). Irrational is the name of the game in the SEC.

Auburn has been that way for decades and has a bevy of donors to buy out contracts as needed. They are and will always be a mess. They just gloss it over with cash. I honestly think coaches who take the job do it because they know they'll get big bank regardless of whether they last 10 years or two. Seriously, the money you'd take in from a single gig there is enough to retire on, and if you got bored, go be an ESPN commentator.

Louisville might look like a mess but they're spending Yum! money to gloss that over. If you think hiring a football coach would be hard, how hard SHOULD their basketball hire have been? Yet they dropped big money and got a great one as if nothing bad had ever happened. And his recruiting hasn't even suffered a bit from it. Remember, it's always only about money.

I would happily take 30MM as a buyout

Why in the world would Malzahn agree to lower his buyout? That makes no sense to me.

Yeah Auburn is crazy, but ~60 mil or whatever reduction it ends up being isn't chump change. A lot of that would need to be paid up front and that kind of money doesn't grow on trees, even at Auburn. I bet they keep him at least one more year.

And then there's this:

Brohm's high school in Louisville had to cancel classes because of a threat related to him turning them down.

Better terms for him? Following are hypotheticals. I'm sure there are many more.

Reduced buyout is in place even if he is fired for cause. He can do a Pitino and they still have to pay.

Reduced buyout is front loaded. Most contracts have buyout paid over a term like a salary. (Miles just did this with LSU.)


Reduced buyout does not require offsets from next job as coach or commentator.


Reduced buyout does not require him even to look for a job. (That is a standard T&C of these things.)


Pre/extra funding of typical fringes like country clubs, cars, retirement plans, etc.


School will pay coach's legal and agent costs instead of the coach.

Huge opportunity for ECU. Kansas & UNC jumping on very old retreads gives ECU a shot at any number of good coaches at the SBC & CUSA level and I think ECU would be a great opportunity for some of them. I’d look at Blake Anderson from Ark St. They are said to be looking at Mike Houston of James Madison (NC native).

You'd think they would look to App. St. for their hire. Montgomery, fwiw, was in over his head. Houston would not be a bad hire, IMO, but a risk because JMU tends to lose games it should win, and win games it should lose.
