Purdue football coach Jeff Brohm met with Louisville athletic director Vince Tyra on Tuesday to discuss coming home. After the meeting was over, just about everyone assumed that the deal was all but done and Brohm would be the joyously received new coach of the Cardinals.

“Yeah, I was leaning [toward Louisville],” Brohm told Yahoo Sports on Friday, in something of an exit interview after going through the decision-making wringer. “I alerted Purdue people exactly what I was thinking. It was a tempting opportunity that I had to think fully through.”

Purdue was convinced enough that Brohm was leaving that it began putting in motion the rudiments of its search to replace him. Louisville people tried to contain their excitement, waiting for the official word.
