The College of Saint Rose track and field coach, a former University at Albany star and two-time captain, has been charged by Albany police for allegedly exposing himself in front of females as young as 3 in four separate incidents dating to December.
Michael McCadney, 31, of Albany, has been charged for his alleged involvement in four incidents between December and Monday, Albany police said today. Saint Rose said in a statement he has been fired from his job.
According to city police. McCadney was sitting in the driver’s seat of a vehicle on Dec. 8 at 3:45 p.m. in the area of Second Avenue and Jeanette Street and began masturbating toward two female teens, ages 16 and 18, who were walking down the street.
On Jan. 11, at 3:10 p.m., while in the area of Garden and Frisbee streets, two girls ages 11 and 12 were walking home from school when they allegedly saw McCadney watching them as he exposed himself, police said.
The two other alleged incidents reportedly took place Monday. At about 3:30 p.m., McCadney was sitting in his vehicle when he allegedly exposed himself to females ages 13 and 14 while on the 200-block of Delaware Avenue, police said. A half-hour later, McCadney reportedly exposed himself to a 3-year-old girl while in the area of Putnam Street and Second Avenue, according to the charges.
He has been charged with four counts each of public lewdness and endangering the welfare of a child. He was arraigned in Albany City Criminal Court, where bail was set at $30,000.
Saint Rose hired McCadney as head coach in September 2014. The college put out a brief statement today stating he has been dismissed:
“Upon learning this morning of the charges filed against Mr. Michael McCadney, The College of Saint Rose acted swiftly, and Mr. McCadney is no longer employed by the College.” His name already has been scrubbed from the athletic department’s directory, with track and field coach’s position listed as “TBA.”
A two-time captain at UAlbany, McCadney was a star in the triple jump — he broke the Great Danes’ indoor and outdoor records — and the long jump, and was named all-conference twice after winning the American East Conference Championship in 2006-07 and 2007-08. Before coaching at Saint Rose, he was an assistant coach at St. John Fisher College and Charlotte High School in Rochester, and at the Leadership Academy for Young Men within the Rochester City School District. He also served as an assistant coach and director of cross country/track and field operations at UAlbany.
When he was hired in 2014, McCadney was still competing in hopes of representing Puerto Rico as a triple jumper in the Olympics this summer in Rio de Janeiro.
