On the Churchill Downs backside you can find a variety of people watching workouts on Derby week. One of those people Monday morning happened to be former WKU head coach and new Purdue Boilermaker Football head coach Jeff Brohm, a Louisville native.

Brohm explained he grew up going to the races and it is a special time for him. He has a BIG 10 meeting in Phoenix mid-week but assured Spectrum News he would be back for Derby Day.
