The Bishop Walsh Spartans, having one of their stronger seasons in recent memory, have fired head coach Geno Taylor. WCBC News learned of the dismissal Saturday after the team's 58-13 victory over the Virginia Lions. The news has been confirmed by Bishop Walsh Athletic Director Jim Zamagias. As is school policy, no additional details will be made available because it is a personnel matter. As of Monday, Mike Allen and Michael Fields will be the coaches. Taylor has also declined comment, although he did confirm his dismissal. Several sources have since confirmed to WCBC News that apparently there was an incident involving the coach drinking beer on the team bus, however school officials again are declining to confirm any of those reports. Taylor was hired in the summer of 2011 at a time when there was discussion of BW discontinuing its football program. In his one plus seasons, Taylor had a record of 11-5.
