LOUISVILLE, Ky. -
Former University of Louisville football standout Greg Brohm has been named the Director of Football Operations with the Cardinals, announced head coach Bobby Petrino.
The former Cardinal wideout, comes to Louisville after serving one year as President of the Louisville Fire in the Arena2 Football League. While with the Fire, he was responsible for all the day-to-day football operations, including corporate sales, marketing, and all personnel decisions. He also served as the offensive coordinator on the coaching staff.
Prior to joining the Fire, Brohm served as an account manager for WHAS Radio and Clear Channel Communications for nine years, where he developed new clients, promotions and marketing plans. Brohm also served on the WHAS broadcast team for Cardinal football for the last 10 seasons.
"I'm very excited about the opportunity to join the University of Louisville football program," said Brohm. "As a graduate, former player and broadcaster, I have a passion for the university and the football program. I will work closely with head coach Bobby Petrino and the rest of the staff to ensure that the football operations run as efficiently as possible."
Brohm, who graduated from Louisville with a bachelor's degree in 1993, was a four-year letterwinner and three-year starter for the Cardinals from 1988-92 under head coach Howard Schnellenberger. He was a starter for the 1991 Fiesta Bowl championship team, catching 11 passes for 138 yards. For his career, Brohm caught 45 passes for 722 yards and three scores.
"It's great to have Greg as part of our staff," said Petrino. "The Brohm family has been a big part of the Cardinal football program, and I knew Greg would be a natural fit for our staff. Being the president of the Fire, I know Greg has the energy, motivation and drive needed for us to succeed."
He joins his two brothers, Jeff and Brian, who are also a part of the Cardinal football team. Jeff is the U of L quarterbacks coach, while Brian signed a national-letter-of-intent with the Cardinals and will join the squad in August.
