Jeff Brohm

Jeff Brohm, a native Kentuckian and one of the state’s most notable football products, enters his third season as the head football coach at WKU.

In just his second year at the helm, Brohm led WKU to arguably its greatest season in school history and certainly its greatest at the FBS level. The Hilltoppers finished No. 24 nationally after they earned their first national ranking, first FBS conference title, and first double-digit win total since moving to the FBS seven years ago. Under Brohm, the Hilltoppers have won consecutive bowl games, coming away with championships in the 2015 Miami Beach Bowl and 2014 Popeyes Bahamas Bowl. He is the first head coach in program history to win 20 games in his first two years.
