WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue coach Jeff Brohm is expected to miss Saturday’s season opener against Iowa after a second test confirmed he has COVID-19.

Big Ten protocol requires players who test positive to sit out 21 days but staff members are required to isolate 10 days. Brohm will not be on the sideline this weekend. Instead, offensive coordinator Brian Brohm will be calling plays.
