Via Courier & Press:

UE received reports about McCarty’s off-court behavior, including an incident that appeared to violate its Title IX policy. 

“The University has received reports of unwelcome conduct by Coach McCarty since his arrival in March 2018,” UE President Chris Pietruszkiewicz wrote in an internal letter to staff. “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.”

Pietruszkiewicz added it was not a decision “made lightly or in haste” because while McCarty, 45, has been successful and is a popular figure in the community as an Evansville native, his success doesn’t “in any way outweigh the need to uphold the standards that define our university.”

Evansville is experiencing the good, bad and the ugly this season.
