Jeff Brohm is hard at work getting ready for his first regular season as Purdue football head coach.

The former WKU head coach took over the Boilermaker program last December.

Brohm stopped by Sports Night on Thursday. He spoke with Andrew Chernoff about his team’s upcoming season and about what it will be like to coach against his alma mater, Louisville, in his team’s season opener.

The Boilermakers open the season against UofL on Saturday, September 2 inside Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
