McCarty announces final additions to first coaching staff

In his first public appearance since his hiring, Walter McCarty officially announced the final pieces to his coaching staff today, most notably the addition of former Butler head coach Todd Lickliter. 

Lickliter was Butler's head coach from 2002-2007, going 131-61. He led Butler to a pair of Sweet 16 appearances. 

McCarty also announced Matthew Graves will join the staff as well. Graves was a former Butler player and assistant coach. 

Today's additions are the final pieces of McCarty's first staff with the Aces, making a complete staff of Logan Baumann, Todd Lickliter, Matthew Graves, and Terrence Commodore.

McCarty says Chris Sparks will not join the staff as previously reported, saying the earlier announcement was simply a miscommunication.
