Bob Knight on ex-Indiana bosses: "I hope they're all dead"


Former Indiana coach Bob Knight said on Friday that he hopes school administration officials who were present when he was fired more than 16 years ago "are all dead."

During an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, Knight was asked about a potential return to Bloomington's Assembly Hall, where he hasn't been since being fired from the school in September 2000.

"Well, I think that I've always really enjoyed the fans and I always will," Knight said. "On my dying day, I will think about how great the fans at Indiana were. As far as the hierarchy at Indiana University at that time, I have absolutely no respect whatsoever with those people. That in mind, I have no interest in ever going back to that university."

When Patrick mentioned that most of the leadership present at the time are no longer at the school, Knight said: "I hope they're all dead." Patrick then said some of those individuals are dead and Knight responded: "I hope the rest of them go."

If this is the price one must pay for a national championship, i.e. to have a coach that is truly classless, I'd pass.

Knight is a world class jerk. I've never understood how anybody can admire him. He tried to adopt a kinder, gentler persona when he was working on TV calling games, but a leopard can't change its spots.
