"Strongsville City Schools has decided to move in a different direction with its varsity boys basketball program," the district said in a statement on Thursday.

Freshman boys basketball coach John Lipowski will take over as varsity head coach, effective on Thursday.

The FOX 8 I-Team reported on the issues surrounding Guilfoyle earlier this week. One parent called the coach a bully, while some players went to the school administration about his conduct.
