Jeff Brohm is the new head football coach at the University of Louisville! Jeff returns not only to his college alma mater, but to a place and a city that’s played a special part in his life going back to his time at Trinity.
The following information was taken from Jeff’s Trinity Hall of Fame plaque found in the R.W. Marshall Sports Center. The full copy can be found here: https://www.trinityrocks.com/alumni/alumni-recognitions/hall-of-fame/hall-of-fame-list/#jeff-brohm
A graduate of the Trinity Class of 1989, Jeff exemplified his class’s theme of “Best Yet.” He was their class president, a leader on and off the playing field, an exceptional student, a gifted athlete, and an outstanding person. He was a two-time Shamrock Award winner, a Trinity Scholar and was awarded the “Mr. Football” Shammy Award in addition to being named 1988 Kentucky Mr. Football.
Jeff was named the Kentucky Athlete of the Year his senior year, and the Kentucky High School Player of the Decade for the 1980s. In 1988, Jeff led the Rocks to an undefeated season and their ninth state title, putting Trinity on the path to what would become a 50-game winning streak! That ’88 team would later be named the “Team of the Decade” by the Courier-Journal and Jeff’s No. 11 jersey was retired by Trinity after his senior season, the first jersey in school history to receive the honor. His brother Brian, Trinity Class of 2004, would later receive the same honor for his No. 12 jersey.
Jeff had scholarship offers from football powers across the country. He chose the University of Louisville and went on to become one of the most prolific offensive players in Cardinal history.
As a Trinity alumnus, Jeff continued his dedication to his alma mater and has been active in charities and community events as a speaker, volunteer and coach. He was named Trinity’s 1994 Honor Alumnus.
We are so excited to welcome Jeff and his family back home!
Go Rocks! Go Cards!
