No decision yet. Offered Brohm offensive coordinator/associate head coach position.
I guess he thinks more of him than Kragsie did (although I expect it to be Petrino's offense and play-calling).
May set Jeff up to be their when petrino leaves after a year or two
That would be great. HC at WKU. I like that.
Doesn't he have the same job at UAB?
Not sure WKU is a step up from that. CUSA is better than the Sun Belt
Now he may take the job to work with BP, or be closer to home, but it's not really a step up from where he is
I doubt WKU is gonna be paying much better for its assistants.
Its a total step up.OC for Petrino means success on offense. See you Alabama.
Exactly. You're going to have better future opportunities as Petrino's OC than as the OC at UAB. Plus closer to home. Seems like a no-brainer to me.
My guess would be this has more to do with instate recruiting then anything.

Jeff Brohm as the young padawan to the jedi master.
If Petrino stays for 2 years it is possibel his OC gets a shot at the HC job or atleast OC at a larger program. I am sure WKU you increased the assistants fund to land Petrino.
OC under a much better coach is a step up. Jeff still has a home here. The family has no issues with CBP. CUSA isn't what it was when UofL was there.
No brainer. You take it and run to Bowling Green. If you have the chance to mentor with Rick Pitino, Nick Saban, John Wooden or Petrino, you take it in a second.
If WKU sets up a succession plan with Brohm replacing Petrino, do it. I could see Jeff finally giving WKU some stability at the HC position and turning them into a solid program every year eventually. Win-win for all involved.

Isn't WKU moving to CUSA after this coming season?
According to this recently authored news update there is speculation but nothing official. I would say that once the Big East folds, WKU will stay in the Sun Belt. After 1-2 years, they will wind up in the MAC or C-USA.
Thinking more of a Sith lord.
Bobby Petrino only has one offensive coordinator, and that is Bobby Petrino. However, Brohm would be smart to take that job at WKU and learn from a great mind. I don't see anything happening for him down at UAB in the long term, so WKU might be a great place for him to land and build a resume.
AKA Big Game James
Not sure how much more Brohm is going to learn from BP than he has already. And at UAB, he's coaching for BP's former Arkansas OC/QB coach...who also played a year under Schnellenberger at OU (not that Brohm is likely to learn anything from him, either, since Brohm played under Schnellie as well).
But the setup is certainly there if BP left WKU for Brohm to get a shot at HC if/when BP leaves. I don't know how good of a fit he is for it, though.

Hopefully Jeff is stronger with the force and doesn't wreck the motorcycle.
And the Sun Belt is a downgrade from CUSA.
I'd imagine he'd be in line at UAB as well if the current coach left and they had rebuilt that program
Looks like he took the WKU job which is understandable given the history he has working with BP, just not a significant step up
And the speculation WKU jumps to CUSA is just that, speculation. They haven't even proven they can win the Sun Belt yet, not sure why they think they can jump up already
