Andre McGee resigns from UMKC, still denies allegations

Photo via UMKC

Breaking news: the man in the center of the Louisville sex scandal, Andre McGee, just resigned from his current position at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. McGee gave this reasoning in a letter to UMKC Director of Athletics Carla Wilson:

“The university deserves a full-time assistant coach, and I am not able to provide that to the basketball team while the false allegations against me are being investigated.”

You can view this a few ways: McGee is still denying the allegations, so he’s not exactly falling on the sword for Pitino and company; however, now that he’s not employed by UMKC, there is no pressure to cooperate with the NCAA.

The saga continues…

    he can deny all he wants… but a truly innocent person would not quit their job for “false” allegations. he wreaks of guilt… this, to me, is the first indication of him proving his guilt. time shall tell.

      ESPN independently confirmed that the text messages came from his phone, and they independently confirmed a wire transfer from McGee to Powell. Not to mention several recruits and players all said he paid Powell and gave them money to throw at the strippers. I don’t know how he can keep denying his involvement.

      apparently it is just the culture of the program… deny, deny, deny.. then deny some more… somebody who is innocent would fight for their job, not give in to some (to take the words from t-will) motherfu****g, money grubbing, whore…

      “A truly innocent person would not quit their job” — so, by that logic, are you saying Pitino is innocent since he isn’t resigning? Or does that logic not apply to Pitino?

      Pitino isn’t quitting because then he gets nothing from his new contract. If he’s fired, he will get all/most of that money. the only way louisville can fire pitino and keep the money is if they can prove he was involved, which i doubt they can

      I happen to fall in the camp of people that don’t believe Pitino knew about this. so my logic does, in fact, apply to Pitino.

      i dont care if he knew or not. i believe he “should have” known… it happened in the dorm. if he didnt know, it was because he wasn’t trying to know.

      My guess is he knew *something* was going on, but turned a blind eye. and when he found out exactly what they were doing, he was shocked.

      there’s no way that someone like Pitino who micromanages EVERYTHING did not know something that was going on in the open for 4 years.

      Molly, your attempt to discount what Catsby stated fails miserably. It’s completely fallacious, and demonstrates your lack of understanding pertaining to logic. He stated an innocent person would not quit his or her job over false allegations. In no way does that imply a guilty person will or will not stay the course and continue working. Nice try, but you fail. You are awarded no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

      Mozambique’disha : You used the phrases “cast aspersions” and “us gots to do what we gots to do” in the same sentence. You have an amazing versatility in the English language. Congrats!

    Um…resigning will not save him from the NCAA…or more importantly, from the feds. If he is indeed found guilty of arranging and paying for sex with a minor…or minors….he’s in a steaming pile of doo-doo.

      Done’t be naive, UL controls the prosecutors in Louisville too, there will be no one prosecuted.

      from what I read they weren’t minors. Legal age of consent in KY is 16 and supposedly they were all over 16.

      80% of the prosecutors in Louisville went to U of L law school if not also for their undergraduate degrees. A friend of mine who has been in Louisville for15 years and is from Chicago says Louisville is every bit as corrupt as Chicago. We’re seeing in the Louisville scandal that being played out to the fullest

    This is the Lance Thomas (the Duke guy that “bought” $10,000 jewelry while in school) defense. Now McGee doesn’t have to say anything to the NCAA. The fate of UL rests on the interviews given by Lyles and Blakney. Nothing but a slap on the wrist for UL, they will go on as Sex scandal U and everyone in the admin dept at UL can keep making their millions of $$$$. It’s a corrupt system but if no one gets any retributions, who cares. Guess we can keep on beating up on Pitino.

      It was $100,000 in jewelry, and Lance Thomas paid $30,000 in cash as a deposit. But hey, it Duke, so the NCAA won’t do anything.

      I don’t think this changes anything. McGee was never going to cooperate with the ncaa anyway because of a potential lawsuit. The NCAA will wait until legal action is completed before making any decisions. At that point, they won’t need to question andre

    This may be a game changer as far as finding out the real truth.
    I hope the NCAA has another way to go besides McGee.

    Is no one wondering about Willard’s sudden departure? Same reason? Hmmm…

      they said that he left for “health reasons”… who the hell knows though… that institution is full of lies.

      It’s health reasons alright. He is sick to his stomach thinking about what’s getting ready to Louisville. Probally had the screaming sh_ts since this story broke.

    CatsBy80…”that institution is full of lies.” makes one wonder if they have a full time staff of people who monitor the lies they tell, to try to keep all that s#it straight!! The UofL OPC…Office of Prevarication Consistency.

    I’m calling it. They should do a “First 48” special on this scandal. Put Pitino and his minions in interrogation rooms separately and observe how quickly they turn on one another.

    I’ll grab the popcorn.

    Rick Pitino – the Hillary Clinton of college basketball. And all their gang. What a bunch of low lifes.

    Pitino made sure he wasn’t going to talk and then proclaimed the only person that knows anything needs to come forward and come clean. UL is going with that narrative and we can all be sure McGee is never going to talk about this ever. They think the public is that dumb….and well, we may be but hopefully everyone sees through this.

    There’s enough out already to hammer UL. The NCAA will talk to the players and the players don’t want to put their eligibility in jeopardy by not cooperating. McGee was never going to talk anyway. He’s not going to rat out his money source. Everyone wants to know where the money came from but we may never know. The NCAA knows money was involved and if UL can’t provide the source then the NCAA will hammer them even harder, imo.

    All that needs to be done is subpoena McGee’s telephone records just prior to his call from MO to Katina.
