A threat was made against a major college football coach's high school following his decision to stay put.

Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm opted to remain with the Boilermakers, passing on an offer from Louisville. Brohm is a Louisville native, having played for the Cardinals and gone to high school in the area.

One Louisville fan is not taking the news well.

Someone has apparently threatened to burn down the high school Brohm attended in Louisville.

The school was forced to cancel classes today.

From 247Sports:

St. Matthews police said one threat made on Twitter was that someone was going to burn down the school because of Brohm’s decision. Police said they are investigating that threat and watching the school for any other threats.

Brohm led Trinity to a state title in an undefeated season of 1988. His brother, Greg, played for the Shamrocks and graduated in '88, while another brother - Brian - won three state titles and was also named Mr. Football in 2002.

His father, Oscar, is still the quarterbacks coach at Trinity.

Be better, people.
