*Andre McGee resigned as assistant coach at University of Missouri-Kansas City on Friday, after he was accused of facilitating sex parties for basketball recruits and players while coaching at Louisville.

McGee is a former Louisville player who served as a graduate assistant and director of men’s basketball operations at the school before coming to UMKC in 2014.

In his resignation letter to UMKC athletics director Carla Wilson, McGee said he couldn’t perform his duties as a coach for the Kangaroos while also dealing with the allegations in Louisville.

“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.

As previously reported, Katina Powell, who appeared on ABC’s “The View” Friday with her daughters, wrote in “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen” that McGee paid her $10,000 for 22 stripper parties from 2010-14 with many taking place at the players’ Billy Minardi Hall dormitory.

Powell and daughters Shay, Lindsey and Rod Ni — all of whom performed with their mother at the parties — appeared on “The View” with Powell’s attorney Larry Wilder. About an hour after the program ended, McGee’s resignation was announced.

Powell described her involvement as “fun” and shrugged off criticism of including her daughters in the sex parties. Rod Ni Powell added, “going to the dorm and being around the basketball players. … was fun.”

Watch their appearance on “The View” below:

Powell’s book has led to four separate investigations, two of which were immediately launched by the athletic department and NCAA when the school was notified of the allegations in late August.

Campus police announced on Oct. 6 that it was working with Louisville Metro Police and the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office to review the allegations for possible criminal charges.

Rick Pitino, head coach at Louisville, has denied knowledge of the sex parties described in Powell’s book.
