Evansville is expected to hire Boston Celtics assistant Walter McCarty, sources told ESPN.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) March 22, 2018
McCarty, a native of Evansville, Indiana has been an assistant coach for the Celtics since 2013. He also played for the Celtics for eight seasons from 1997-2005, becoming a fan favorite for his hustle on the court and his ability to hit big shots.
The Celtics will lose one of their assistants after this season, but McCarty getting a head coaching job at a Division 1 basketball program is a nice step up for him. But probably nobody will hate to see him go more than Tommy Heinsohn, who made this famous call expressing his affection for McCarty how only Tommy could.
