Strongsville varsity basketball head coach relieved of duties

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio– Strongsville head basketball coach Joe Guilfoyle has been fired.

A story first broke by NEO Sports Insiders last week regarding Guilfoyle allegedly striking a player and being verbally abusive, and we can now confirm that he has been terminated from his position.

Several players and parents went to the administration and complained of alleged physical and verbal abuse towards both their children and other coaches.

When contacted for a statement today, Strongsville High School communications director Dan Foust sent the following statement:

“Strongsville City Schools has decided to move in a different direction with its varsity boys basketball program. Effective today (2/1/18), current freshman boys basketball coach John Lipowski will be taking over as the head varsity boys basketball coach.
