The Cardinals fired former head coach Bobby Petrino during the season and were seen as the favorites to land Brohm before his announcement.Brohm, whose alma mater is Louisville, said he thinks it’s important to finish the building process he started at Purdue two years ago. In two seasons as the team’s head coach, Brohm led the Boilermakers to two 6-6 seasons and one bowl win.Most thought Brohm would leave Purdue for his alma mater, but Brohm shocked the college football world with his announcement Wednesday night.Louisville fans took the news especially hard. One alleged Louisville fan burned Brohm’s brother’s No. 12 jersey.Check it out.I was just sent this video from a UofL Fan: pic.twitter.com/DM7FXdHQEy— Mark Blankenbaker (@UofLSheriff50) November 29, 2018Brohm’s brother, Brian, also played for Louisville and currently serves as Purdue’s co-offensive coordinator.Not a good look for Louisville fans.

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Information is advising administrators in educational and training institutions to take the necessary steps to eliminate incidents of sexual harassment.The Ministry, in a recent bulletin, said that sexual harassment “is a barrier to equal opportunity and treatment of females and males”.In an effort to ensure that all students are safe and secure while in their care, school administrators are being directed to become familiar with a brochure issued by the Bureau of Gender Affairs, which guides the process on how to treat with such incidents.The Ministry reminded institutions that they have a responsibility to develop a policy to address sexual harassment; conduct workshops/training sessions with all teaching staff and other employees; ensure that the issue of sexual harassment is incorporated in the curricula; put in place a complaint/grievance procedure or committee to handle reports of sexual harassment from students; protect against victimisation and false accusations; and to ensure that the accuser and accused have an equal chance to be heard.
