Jeff Brohm is going back home, as he and Louisville are finalizing a deal to make him the Cardinals' next head football coach, sources told ESPN on Wednesday.

Brohm has been the head coach at Purdue the past six seasons and guided the Boilermakers to the Big Ten championship game this season.

He had an outstanding playing career at Louisville and remains among the school's leaders in touchdown passes and total offense. He was inducted into the Louisville Ring of Honor in 2006.
