Coach Knight was one of a kind, no one will ever deny that. Some will choose to remember him for his sideline antics. Some will choose to remember his dismissal from Indiana after violating the University’s “no tolerance” policy. I will remember Coach Knight for one thing, and that’s teaching the game of Basketball, and doing better than almost anyone ever has and ever will.
Coach Knight leaves Texas Tech as the winningest coach in the history of College Basketball, with 28 NCAA Tournament appearances and 3 National Championships. His 1976 Indiana team is the last team to go undefeated in the sport. He won a Gold Medal a coach of the Olympic team in 1984.
Obviously Coach Knight made some mistakes, and he more than paid for them. His temper got him into trouble more than once, and he had numerous players transfer out of his program. However, he taught Basketball better than anyone and his 15 NBA Draft first round selections and 36 NBA players speak volumes about the kind of teacher he was. College Basketball won’t be the same without him.
