    Bobby Knight resigns effective immediately

    Rivals.com Staff Reports

    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.

    Good coach with a bad temper. I think he just got tired and saw his son could take over and did it.

    It was great sitting in Assembly Hall at IU.
    Waiting for the game to start.
    Everyone is on the court except Knight.
    The entire crowed is anticipating his arrival.
    Finally, Knight comes walking out onto and across the court to the IU bench.


    When Knight was hired at TT tv and radio stations in Indiana started carrying the Red Raiders games.
    Grown men and woman were wearing TT attire throughout the state.
    I still have two TT t-shirts and a cap.
    In fact, I wore my favorite one yesterday.
    It says, "The General is here" on the front, and "Prepare for Battle" on the back.
