You will never hear a Brohm criticize the University of Louisville publicly. The Brohms care so much.

Took a little longer than expected but Greg Brohm is no longer Director of Football Operations at U of L. The observer had concluded in March, shortly after Jeff Brohm left the football program as offensive coordinator, that Greg’s departure was inevitable.

Brohm, who lettered as a wide receiver from 1989 to 1992, will work on special projects at U of L, including the expansion of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

“The university is very important to me,” Greg told the Courier-Journal. “I will do whatever job I am asked to do to the best of my ability. With stadium expansion and the other projects we have going on, I think there are some areas I look forward to helping with.”

His other brother, Brian Brohm, quarterbacked the Cardinals from 2004 through 2007. The Brohms have been associated with the football program since 1968-69 when their dad, Oscar Brohm, was quarterback.

Quite a legacy.

    Who’s left from the old faithfuls? Probably only Greg Nord who has been around since Schnellenberger’s early days. Kragthorpe has left a permanent print on the Cardinal football program. Watch your back, baby.

    Another regrettable move in what has become a total transformation of UofL football since the Orange Bowl. Greg was a hard and tireless worker in his role with the team and had built up a ton of contacts in the community and college football fraternity.

    Every day, it seems, brings about a change in the football program. I wonder if we’ll ever get the real story behind this move and I guess we’ll know in time whether all these changes were beneficial to a program that hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since the end of the Petrino regime.

    The bigger story here is Greg’s wanting to stay at the University of Louisville. With a new job, he can broaden his horizons.

    “…hasn’t exactly set the world on fire…?” This understatement is much like saying the Hindenburg was the winner of the Derby Balloon Glow contest.

    Krags has pretty much let everyone go finally. Except the Brohms were here before him, played here and were apparently doing a good job until Krags got here. I really hate the way Krapthorpe has ruined this football program. and cut off plenty of die hard supporters. I bet Greg, and Jeff end up working back at this University one day after Krags is fired. I am amazed by this loser who is acting like a head football coach. After Kragthorpe is fired he should have to pay back all the money this University paid him to the Brohm’s because without them he wouldn’t have been here, and neither would a large percentage of the fanbase.

    Hindenburg was in the Derby Balloon Glow? A shame Kragthorpe wasn’t the pilot.

    Steve Kragthorpe has lost more than he’s won in nearly every major facet of his job: games, fans, trust, coaches, in-state recruits, out-of-state recruits, etc.

    Face it, Steve is a loser.

    Agree 100 %. In fact I would challenge anyone to name just one aspect of Louisville Football that is better under Stevie.
