Walter McCarty placed on administrative leave at Evansville

University of Evansville head coach and former Kentucky star Walter McCarty has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation into alleged violations of the school’s Title IX policy.

According to a release, the University of Evansville has “received reports about Coach McCarty’s off-court behavior, including a recent incident that appeared to violate its Title IX policy.”

“The investigation will be conducted by a national law firm,” the release states. “The University will make a fair and informed decision on Coach McCarty’s status based on the results of the investigation. At this time, the University does not intend to publicly discuss or disclose any specific details related to the investigation.”

Bennie Seltzer will serve as the team’s interim head coach.

    Bennie Seltzer sounds like something my grandma used to give me for a cold.

    Wow! Hopefully this isn’t another Winston Bennett deal. McCarty was said to be close with Ricky P, though! Hopefully this is all a big misunderstanding!

    Beat Kentucky and think you’re a Rock Star. Lol. Just joking here, but I’m probably not far off.

    Wow, I hope this turns out to be unfounded. The fact that he is a UK championship alum didn’t take away the sting of that loss for me, but a part of me was still happy for Walter personally. And as always with a UK alum, I thought that if he rises as a hot coaching prospect maybe he would take over when Cal retires.

    Walter would be 102 years old when Cal retires.
