Taylor played in 90 games (17 starts) in three seasons at Marquette and has one year of eligibility left. 

"We want to thank Steve for his contributions to the program, not only this season, but his entire career," coach Steve​ Wojciechowski said. "We also wish him the best of luck as he explores other opportunities to continue both his academic and athletic careers."

The Golden Eagles finished 13-19 (4-14 Big East) this season in their first year under Wojciechowski.
