Bill Lanscek's surprising departure as Bethlehem Catholic's girls basketball coach was the school administration's choice.

Athletic Director Mike Grasso confirmed on Tuesday that the school "decided to go in a different direction."

Lanscek was surprised and upset by the move.

Lanscek led the Golden Hawks to the LVC and District 11 titles this year, as well as a trip to the PIAA 3A girls state championship game last season.
