A week after winning the 500th baseball game of his career, BC High baseball coach Norm Walsh was suspended by the Dorchester school, for the remainder of the season for inappropriate use of language, according to athletic director Jon Bartlett.
Walsh will continue as a teacher at BC High. He has been replaced by his assistant, John Lynch, who coached the team at the Eagles game at Quincy Friday.
Walsh, a 1970 graduate of BC High, recorded his 500th win when the Eagles beat Malden Catholic May 17. BC High 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 their second straight state championship.
