BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Western Kentucky coach Bobby Petrino has hired Jeff Brohm and Nick Holt to be the Hilltoppers' offensive and defensive coordinators respectively.

Both coaches, who worked with Petrino at Louisville, will be introduced at an afternoon news conference.

Brohm, who will also have the titles of assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach, comes to WKU after serving last season as Alabama-Birmingham's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He also served as Petrino's quarterbacks coach at Louisville from 2003-06.

Holt joins the Hilltoppers after a year as Arkansas' on-campus recruiting coordinator. He was defensive coordinator at Washington from 2009-11 and Southern California from 2006-08, and Idaho's head coach from 2004-05.

Holt was defensive line coach at Louisville in 1998, when Petrino was the Cardinals' offensive coordinator.
