- Jeff Brohm signed a six-year contract at Louisville.
- His base annual salary starts at $5 million.
- If fired, Brohm is due 100% of his remaining contract.
In late November 2018, Jeff Brohm rejected an offer to replace Bobby Petrino as Louisville head coach. He remained at Purdue, where he signed a two-year contract extension earlier in the year.
Four years later, on Dec. 8, 2022, Brohm accepted an offer to replace Scott Satterfield as Louisville head coach and signed a six-year, $36-million contract with his alma mater.
Jeff Brohm’s Contract Details
Jeff Brohm’s contract runs from Dec. 9, 2022, through Dec. 31, 2028.
It’s automatically extended by one year if Louisville wins seven games in a season, and two years if Louisville wins 10 wins during the first six years of the contract. The maximum automatic extension is capped at two total years (through Dec. 31, 2030).
In both cases, the win total includes bowl wins.

- 2025: $5.2 million
- 2026: $5.3 million
- 2027: $5.4 million
- 2028: $5.5 million
If employed via the win-total extension(s) in 2029, Brohm’s base salary will be $6.5 million. If employed in 2030, his salary would be $7 million.

Jeff Brohm’s Bonuses
Jeff Brohm’s potential bonuses include those for individual awards, academic achievements, and on-field success.
Among the on-field “football success” bonuses:
- ACC Coach of the Year: $50,000
- National Coach of the Year: $50,000
- ACC Championship: $250,000
- Playoff appearance: $500,000
- National championship: $750,000
The playoff appearance and national championship bonuses aren’t cumulative. The highest level achieved among those two bonuses (and four others in the “other success” category of bonuses) is paid to Brohm.
Jeff Brohm’s Buyout
If fired without cause, Brohm is owed 100% of his remaining contract, including base salary and end-of-year one-time payments.
A simple example of a termination buyout: If fired after the 2025 season – without any seven-win seasons to trigger the automatic extension – Brohm would be owed $19.1 million.
If Brohm terminates the contract, he must pay $1 million to Louisville. So the timing of termination is irrelevant.
