“The University has received reports of unwelcome conduct by Coach McCarty since his arrival in March 2018,” University President Chris Pietruszkiewicz wrote. “We have counseled him about his behavior. In the last two weeks, the University received a troubling report about Coach McCarty’s interactions with a member of the campus community. We have placed Coach McCarty on leave while that incident is being investigated.”
Evansville hired McCarty in 2018 after he had spent the previous five seasons as an assistant with the Boston Celtics. He is 20-25 during his tenure, including a 9-4 start to this season highlighted by the Aces’ upset of #1 Kentucky (McCarty’s alma mater) at Rupp Arena in November.
