The Boston Herald is reporting this afternoon that Boston College High baseball coach Norm Walsh has been suspended for the remainder of the season, including playoffs, following a verbal exchange with a player.
Assistant coach John Lynch is expected to take over interim duties in place of Walsh, who won his 500th game as Eagles skipper two weeks ago. The Eagles, ESPNBoston.com's No. 1 team in the land in its preseason poll, are expected to contend for the Division 1 South title and beyond when brackets are unveiled next week.
"All we can say is that Norm has been suspended for the remainder of the baseball season for inappropriate language," BC High Athletic Director Jon Bartlett told the paper. "Anything else will be handled internally."
