Anaconda head coach suspended from team activities

Anaconda will be on the road for two powerful nonconference games against Whitehall and Butte Central this week, but will compete without their head coach.

Confirmed by Anaconda High athletic director Allen Green on Wednesday, boys basketball head coach Bill Hill has been suspended.

The fifth-year head coach was suspended for one week from all team activities. The details of the suspension was not disclosed.

“I cannot discuss the nature of the suspension because it’s a personnel issue,” Green said. “All I can confirm is that he has been suspended.”

Hill will be unavailable to coach for one calendar week starting Monday, Jan. 14. He is expected to return to the sidelines in time for Anaconda’s nonconference home game against Class A Corvallis Friday and on the road at 6B archrival Deer Lodge next Saturday.
