UMKC assistant coach resigns, calls scandal allegations false

Amid a sex scandal, UMKC assistant basketball coach Andre McGee has resigned. McGee has been on administrative leave at UMKC since Oct. 2.

Before coming to Kansas City, McGee was a player and director of basketball operations at the University of Louisville. He’s been accused of hiring escorts and other dancers to strip and have sex with former recruits and players, according to KCTV5.

“The university deserves a full time assistant coach and I am not able to provide that to the basketball team while the false allegations against me are being investigated,” McGee wrote in a letter to UMKC Director of Athletics Carla Wilson.

The allegations appeared in a book published by a former escort.

UMKC says it is investigating allegations involving McGee and Louisville recruiting. The NCAA and the University of Louisville have also said they are investigating the allegations. UMKC says it will have no additional comment while the investigation continues.
