Derrick Jackson hired as assistant coach at Purdue

|

New Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm continues to round out his new coaching staff.

After being awarded a job that was linked to Les Miles for much of the season, the new head coach will be expected to get some results right off the bat.

It appears Brohm is operating with the mindset that eight heads are better then one.

That’s right, eight coaches have been hired by Purdue since Dec. 5 of 2016.

However, Jackson is a coach who has been around for a while and is starting to make a name for himself. With the entire coaching staff new at Purdue, he will get an opportunity to rise quickly if he is able to produce success on the field. Jackson spent the past five years coaching at Wake Forest, with the 2014-2016 seasons serving as the defensive backs coach.

Jeff Brohm has been aggressive in hiring coaches he believes can lead Purdue to unprecedented success. If they fail to do so, the unemployment line will suddenly get a lot longer.
