Jeff Brohm announced on Wednesday that he will remain the head football coach at Purdue, rather than take the head coaching job at his alma mater Louisville.
And on Wednesday night, Trinity High School released a statement on their website that school will be closed on Thursday after a threat was made against the school “due to Jeff Brohm deciding to remain at Purdue.”
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.
According to WDRB.Com, “St. Matthews Police said someone made a threat on Twitter on Wednesday evening to burn down the school because of Brohm’s decision.”
Update: The person in question has since been arrested for “felony terroristic threatening”:

Trinity is located in Louisville and is Brohm’s high school alma mater. Brohm starred at quarterback at Trinity and graduated from the school in 1989, and his father Oscar is an assistant coach for the football team.
