Purdue turns to Jeff Brohm to end woes, jazz up program

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Jeff Brohm's welcome party at Purdue was full of fanfare, with a pep band, cheerleaders, the school mascot and boosters all celebrating the arrival of the Boilermakers' new coach.

Now it's up to Brohm to inject excitement into the program and get fans back in the seats at Ross-Ade Stadium. Some wins would sure help, too.

All it took to lure Brohm away from Western Kentucky was a six-year contract worth an average of approximately $3.5 million per year, the promise of upgrades inside the program and a chance to put Purdue back on the national stage.
