At FAU
"I'm definitely looking forward to joining Howard Schnellenberger's staff," said Brohm. "I have a lot of respect for everything he has accomplished in his career. I've learned a lot from him as a player and I hope to do the same as a member of his staff."

Brohm, who will concentrate his attention on the quarterbacks, will bring a thorough knowledge of Schnellenberger's pro-style offense to FAU after playing his collegiate career under Schnellenberger at the University of Louisville.

"We are very fortunate that Jeff Brohm has become available just as Gary Nord made the move to Purdue," said Schnellenberger. "He is a perfect fit for the continuation of our pro-style attack which he guided so proficiently as a player. He has coached some of the finest quarterbacks in the University of Louisville Cardinals' history. As he leaves his Louisville home, he will be coming to Florida and his new home `away from home."

At Louisville
Brohm, a native of Louisville, served as the quarterbacks coach from 2004-06, assistant head coach and passing game coordinator in 2007, and the assistant head coach and offensive coordinator in 2008 at Louisville. Under Brohm's direction, the Cardinals' passing-attack flourished, including a record-breaking season in 2007 with Brohm's brother, Brian, as quarterback. Brian Brohm threw for 4,024 yards including 30 touchdowns, while on his way to repeating second team All-Big East accolades. Brian finished second in the nation in passing efficiency and completed 68.8 percent of his throws in 2006.

In his first season as an assistant coach at Louisville, Jeff Brohm guided then- quarterback Stefan LeFors to finish first in the nation in passing efficiency and completion percentage and watched as the southpaw narrowly missed setting NCAA records in both categories.

Playing Career
He started his NFL career in 1994 with the San Diego Chargers, who played in Super Bowl XXIX. He played for the San Francisco 49ers from 1995-97 where he was the backup quarterback to Hall of Famer Steve Young in 1997.

From 1998-2000 he played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Denver Broncos, and the Cleveland Browns. In 2001, Brohm played in the XFL for the Orlando Rage and was named first team All-XFL as he owned the league's highest QB rating at 99.9. Jeff first rose to football glory at Trinity High School where he was named "Mr. Football" for the state of Kentucky in 1988 after leading the Shamrocks to a state championship.

Collegiate
Brohm was one of four family members to earn a gridiron letter from Louisville. He wrapped up his four-year collegiate career as one of the most prolific offensive players to wear Louisville's jersey. As a three-year starter for the Cards, Brohm ranks among the all-time leaders for passing yards, touchdown passes, completions, total offense and completion percentage.

He was voted as the team's MVP in both 1992 and 1993 and always will be remembered for a gritty performance in leading Louisville to an 18-7 victory over Michigan State University in the 1993 Liberty Bowl, one of Schnellenberger's six-career bowl victories. Playing with two steel pins and one steel plate in the index finger of his throwing hand, Brohm completed 19-of-29 passes for 197 yards and a touchdown, all while playing in 20-degree temperatures and freezing rain to earn the game's MVP award.

As a student-athlete at Louisville, Brohm played two seasons of baseball with the Cleveland Indians organization while playing football for the Cards.

High School
He also was named the "Kentucky High School Player of the Decade" for the 1980s before attending Louisville, where his number was honored in 2006 for his contributions as a Cardinal quarterback.
