Celtics assistant Walter McCarty to be named Evansville's next head coach

The Evansville Purple Aces have hired Celtics assistant and former Kentucky Wildcat Walter McCarty as their new head coach.

McCarty, who's 44 and a Evansville native, has been on Brad Stevens' coaching staff since 2013 after being an assistant to his former college coach Rick Pitino at Louisville from 2007 to 2011 and briefly with the Indiana Pacers staff.
McCarty played at Kentucky from 1993-96 and carved out a sold decade in the NBA, primarily in Boston.

McCarty replaces Marty Simmons, who was let go earlier this month, after 11 seasons and a 184-175 record.
