A week after earning the 500th victory of his career, Boston College High baseball coach Norm Walsh was suspended by the school for the remainder of the season “for inappropriate use of language,’’ according to athletic director Jon Bartlett.
Bartlett declined further comment and Walsh did not return telephone calls.
Walsh will continue as a social studies teacher at the school. He has been replaced by his assistant, John Lynch, who coached the team against Quincy Friday. Lynch is also a math teacher at BC High.
Walsh, a 1970 graduate of BC High, recorded his 500th win when the Eagles beat Malden Catholic May 17.
The team won the Catholic Conference title this spring and is one of the favorites in the MIAA Division 1 tournament, which starts next week.
Walsh was inducted into the BC High Hall of Fame in 1997 and the Massachusetts Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2009, the same year his team won its second straight state championship.
