Norton coach fired

From an outsider looking in, it seemed that the Norton coaches got a lot out of those kids throughout the years. Anyone have details on the firing?

Yappi will become famous soon enough
Seemed strange when I heard about this. The only explanation I've heard from others is that he was too old school, not sure how accurate that is though...

Be careful about speculation. I always thought he was a very solid coach. Yes, maybe he was a little "old school," but I thought Frank Martin made that in vogue again?!?!

Yeah, Norton has always had a decent team, if not great. Im surprised that they fired the coach.

Seems like a beef that the retiring Superintendent has with the coach. Why else would an out-going superintendent make this kind of decision??!!

Board wants to rehire the coach. The basketball staff will not come back if they do not rehire him

Hearing Mike Murphy, former Highland coach, is in the running for the job.

Is this the coach that went from Copley Girls, the Highland Girls, to Highland Boys, to Cloverleaf Boys Asst? He seems like a bit of a mercenary coach, follows talent and then leaves when the cupboard is bare.

that could happen as he is buds with new Norton Super ! That would be a joke of a hire ... no loyalty, always leaves when talent starts to run out
