Multiple outlets reported that Purdue has reached an agreement with Western Kentucky coach Jeff Brohm to become its next head football coach.

Brohm is expected to be introduced at a Monday press conference. Yahoo reported Brohm met with his Western Kentucky players Monday morning and informed them of the decision.

Terms of the agreement are not yet known. Purdue was believed to be offering a significant increase of Brohm's earnings at Western Kentucky, where he earned $800,000 in base salary with up to $200,000 more in incentives.

Brohm compiled a 30-10 record in three seasons with the Hilltoppers, who just won their second consecutive Conference USA championship. Western Kentucky went 12-2 last season, finishing with a No. 24 ranking in the Associated Press poll. The Hilltoppers are currently 10-3 and accepted a bid to the Boca Raton Bowl on Sunday.

Brohm, 45, succeeds Darrell Hazell, who was fired six games into his fourth season. Purdue went on to finish 3-9 for its fourth straight losing season and has compiled a 9-39 record in that span.

Brohm starred as a quarterback at Louisville from 1989-93. He spent seven seasons as a reserve quarterback with six NFL franchises, playing in eight games, and played one season in the XFL.

Brohm twice served as an assistant under Bobby Petrino, first as quarterbacks coach at Louisville and later as assistant head coach and offensive coordinator at Western Kentucky. In between Brohm earned Big Ten Conference experience as the quarterbacks coach on Ron Zook's staff at Illinois.
