EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Evansville announced today the dismissal of Walter McCarty as Head Coach of the Men’s Basketball team, effective immediately.

Mr. McCarty was placed on administrative leave on December 26, 2019, as UE initiated an external investigation by a national law firm into reports of alleged sexual misconduct and violations of the University’s Title IX policy.

Since then, the University has received additional reports of alleged misconduct by Mr. McCarty during his tenure at UE. Last year, the University had issued warnings to Mr. McCarty regarding inappropriate off-court behavior with members of our campus community. Mr. McCarty also participated in training concerning acceptable behavior under Title IX.

While the investigation of potential Title IX violations will continue under University policies, UE has decided that, based on the facts uncovered thus far, it is necessary to terminate Mr. McCarty’s employment immediately.

There is no place at UE for any behavior by any University employee or student that jeopardizes the safety and security of others.

Bennie Seltzer will continue to serve as interim Head Coach of Men’s Basketball until a new head coach is appointed.

On November 12, 2019, Coach McCarty led the Evansville men’s team to an upset of then #1 ranked University of Kentucky Wildcats, 67-64, gaining national and global prestige for the upset.
