Return of the Hoosier: Knight back at Indiana after 20 years

By  | 

Bob Knight is back at Indiana for the first time in nearly two decades. The 79-year-old combustible coach won three national championships in 29 seasons with the Hoosiers. But he had stayed away from the program after he was fired in 2000. That absence finally ended Saturday.

He is expected to be honored at halftime of the Purdue-Indiana game at Assembly Hall. Also to be honored is former Purdue coach Gene Keady and members of Indiana's 1980 Big Ten championship team.
