Andre McGee, the former director of basketball operations of Louisville, who is a key figure in the recruiting scandal at the university, has resigned as an assistant coach with Missouri-Kansas City.
“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 athletic director Carla Wilson.
Allegations made in the book “Breaking Cardinal Rules” by Katina Powell state that McGee was the mastermind behind a recruiting ploy where he paid for prostitutes to strip and have sex with recruits and players at a dorm on the Louisville campus dating back to 2010.
The NCAA and University of Louisville police as well as school administrators are all investigating the claims.
McGee joined the staff as an Assistant Coach in April of 2014. He came to Kansas City after spending the previous four seasons as part of the University of Louisville staff, where he worked with ‘Roos Head Coach Kareem Richardson.
