Walter McCarty hires attorney and is cooperating with UE investigation

Sports

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) Aces head coach Walker McCarty has hired an attorney and is cooperating with the school’s investigation into alleged Title IX violations.

That’s according to the Indianapolis Star.

The newspaper is reporting that McCarty has hired Indianapolis based attorney Jon Little.

Little released a statement to the Indy Star that says, “Last week, Coach McCarty was directed by UE officials to refrain from publicly commenting on the ongoing investigation. Coach McCarty would like nothing more than to publicly clear his name, but he respects UE’s policies and its private investigatory process. As Coach McCarty cooperates with the investigation, he remains grateful for the support received from both the UE and Evansville communities.”

McCarty was placed on administrative leave last week. Bennie Seltzer has been named interim head coach.
