BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- WKU added a new member to its football staff today as Greg Brohm joins the Hilltoppers as Director of Football Operations, the program announced on Wednesday.
“I’m very excited to add Greg to our staff,” said head coach Jeff Brohm. “He brings an extensive background in football operations to WKU and his strong football ties and relationships both in Louisville and across the country will be an immediate benefit to our program. Greg also has experience in marketing which will continue to help in selling our program across the state of Kentucky and our region.”
Brohm comes to The Hill after two years as a teacher and head football coach at Thomas Nelson High School in Bardstown where he started the football program from the ground up at the brand new school.
Brohm spent five seasons as the Director of Football Operations at Louisville after one year as President of the Louisville Fire of the Arena2 Football League. During his time at Louisville, Brohm spent three years as the DFO under former Hilltopper coach Bobby Petrino as the Cardinals won a Conference USA and Big East Championship, went to three bowl games and twice finished in the AP Top 10.
While at Louisville, Brohm was responsible for day-to-day operations of the program, including travel, camp, and bowl organization. Brohm also played major roles in game management, budgeting, football scheduling, implementation of football marketing campaigns, rules compliance, and donor relations. With the Fire, he was responsible for all the day-to-day football operations, including corporate sales, marketing, and 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 nine seasons. In addition to working on the U of L broadcast team, Brohm has previously hosted a daily radio sports talk show for two years, a weekly television sports talk show for three years and served periodically as a color analyst on several high school radio and TV broadcasts in the Louisville area.”
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 as a receiver, catching passes from his brother, Jeff.
In high school, Brohm was a three-sport athlete in football, basketball, and baseball at Trinity High School. In 1987, Brohm was named First Team All-State in football and was inducted into the Trinity High School Hall of Fame in 2006. The Brohm Family, known as Louisville’s First Family of Football, recently received the inaugural Howard Schnellenberger Award, given by the Louisville Catholic Sports Hall of Fame.
