TribLIVE Sports Videos
Marshall Biddington has been fired from his position as head coach of the Geibel boys basketball team.
Less than a year after being hired to replace Ken Misiak as the head coach of the Geibel boys basketball team, Marshall Biddington has been fired.
"I'm very upset about it," Biddington said. "I moved my whole life from Pittsburgh back to Uniontown just for Geibel, and this is how they treat me."
Biddington said that he met with Geibel athletic director Rick Watkins and new school principal John Lipchik on Thursday. According to Biddington, Lipchik told him that his insubordination to Watkins was the reason for his dismissal.
Biddington noted that he had several confrontations with Watkins during his short tenure as coach of the Gators.
"I just wanted to promote Geibel," Biddington said. "I wanted Geibel to grow and succeed. I don't know which direction Geibel is heading in now."
Biddington is a 1998 graduate of Geibel. In his one season as coach of the Gators, he finished with a 12-11 record, which included a first-round loss to Sewickley Academy in the WPIAL Class A playoffs.
Watkins wouldn't provide details on the firing, only to confirm that Biddington had been let go.
"The position has been opened up, but I'm not allowed to comment on personnel issues," Watkins said.
