Jeff Brohm, a Louisville native, announced on Wednesday that he had decided to stay put at Purdue, passing on a head coaching offer from his alma mater.

The decision was a tough one for the Boilermakers' head coach, as he's dreamed of coaching at his alma mater, but he believes he has something special brewing at Purdue. The timing wasn't right, he said.

Louisville fans aren't happy, obviously, but one Cardinals' fan appears to have gone overboard in an extreme case.

The high school Brohm attended in Louisville, Trinity High School, announced late on Wednesday that classes have been cancelled for Thursday after a threat was made following the head coach's decision.

From the school:

Trinity officials were notified by police of a threat against the school due to Jeff Brohm deciding to remain at Purdue.

While police investigate the threat classes are canceled and offices are closed on Thursday, Nov. 29.
