He coached at Indiana from 1971-2000 and led his teams to three NCAA championships, one NIT title and 11 Big Ten titles. In 1984 he coached a Michael Jordan-led U.S. Olympic team to a gold medal in Los Angeles.

The Indiana Hoosiers were in town to play the Gophers en route to a 20-9 record and an appearance in NCAA post-season play. A month after his Minnesota appearance Knight was featured in an unflattering piece on the CNN/SI network.

He had just finished the third of what was to be seven seasons as the basketball coach at Texas Tech. He said he was working with ESPN to produce a series called “Knight School,” about a handful of Texas Tech students competing for a non-scholarship spot on the basketball team.
