By MyFM's Jake Archer - Walter McCarty has been a part of the Boston Celtics organization for a long, long time. He was a fan-favorite as a player, has done some work as an analyst and was recently an assistant coach with the team. Before he was a Celtic though, he was a Kentucky Wildcat. Before that, he was an Evansville, Indiana native. Now, he's headed back after accepting the head coaching job at the University of Evansville.
McCarty has been on Brad Stevens staff since 2013 as an assitant coach and is well-respected around the game. Before coming back to the Celtics, he was with the Indiana Pacers and the Lousiville Cardinals. Now he'll get his first shot at being the head-honcho and I'm sure he'll do really well with the "Purple Aces."
