Bob Knight retires effective immediately

Bob Knight, the winningest NCAA men's division I basketball coach in history, has retired as Texas Tech's coach effective immediately.
Knight, 67, won his 902nd game Saturday when the Red Raiders downed Oklahoma State. He will be replaced by his son, Pat. Knight informed athletic director Gerald Myers of his decision Monday morning.

Knight won three national titles at Indiana, in 1976, '81 and '87. In all, he took the Hoosiers to 24 NCAA tournament appearances and reached the Final Four two other times.

During his tenure at Texas Tech, Knight was 138-82, and he led the Red Raiders to the NCAA Tournament in four of his six seasons, reaching the Sweet 16 in 2005. The Red Raiders are 11-8 this season and 3-3 in the Big 12, tied for sixth in the conference with Oklahoma.

Knight is one of six men who have played and coached in the Final Four. He played for Ohio State when the Buckeyes reached the Final Four in 1960, '61 and '62. He and Dean Smith are the only mean who have played and coached for a national champion.

Knight's three national titles are tied for third-most, behind John Wooden's 10 and Adolph Rupp's four. Mike Krzyzewski, who played for Knight at Army, also has three titles. Krzyzewski began his college coaching career as a graduate assistant at Indiana under Knight in 1974.

Knight's five Final Four appearances are tied for sixth all-time.

He also coached U.S. teams to gold medals in the 1979 Pan American Games and the 1984 Olympics.

Knight perhaps is as well-known for his temper and behavior as he is for his win total. He was fired at Indiana on Sept. 10, 2000, by then-IU president Myles Brand for what Brand termed a continuing pattern of "defiant and hostile" behavior.

Knight always has taken great pride in the academic achievement of his players, and during his coaching career, which began in 1965 at Army, all but four of his four-year players completed degrees, a ratio of nearly 98 percent.
Holy shit. I thought Old Man Knight would coach until he had a coronary on the court while yelling at and strangling.............ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, "repositioning" one of his players.

Wow. Totally out of left field with this. Maybe he just wants to coach the Buckeyes.

Late.

They're not too bad. Of course, they're miles behind Bobby's old team, but that's irrelevent. I wonder if he'll find a new team in the future. Shit, he might as well go back and coach the Hoosiers, because Kelvin Sampson is pretty much the most corrupt motherfucking coach in recent memory.

A teacher once explained that part of our mind tells us to have fun, and part of our mind tells us to get things done. Sometimes it seemed like Bobby Knight's brain only worked one way, and hey, it paid off. If this is the end, then he's had one hell of a career.

I know a few teams that could use Knight.
