The Louisville basketball sex scandal investigation has forced Andre McGee -- a former UL staffer -- to quit his current coaching gig at another school ... TMZ Sports has learned.
McGee told the University of Missouri-Kansas City he would no longer be assistant coach of the basketball team because the University of Louisville probe was taking too much of his time.
McGee said, "The university deserves a full time assistant coach and I am not able to provide that to the basketball team while the false allegations are being investigated."
As we reported ... madam Katina Powell named McGee as the Louisville staffer who helped set up recruits with her prostitutes. McGee was a grad assistant at UL, who went on to become director of basketball operations. Powell went on "The View" on Friday, and claimed McGee told her UL head coach Rick Pitino knew about the players getting hookers.
Pitino recently called on McGee to step forward and tell the truth about the prostitution ring allegations.
McGee resignation came within hours of Powell's 'View' appearance.
