The Knoxville News-Sentinnel
is reporting that
Texas Tech head basketball coach, Bob Knight has been contacted about filling the current vacancy for a men's basketball coach at UT. And the really intriguing part--Knight is interested. (Thanks to Barry
for making me aware of this development).
On the one hand, if we get Bob Knight, the program gains a lot of credibility and it certainly addresses the percpetion that UT can't be a three big-time sport school. On the other hand, I remember that Jerry Green was far less tempermental than Knight and he couldn't get along with the media and fans in Knoxville. So, how would Bob Knight fare?
I'm sure this won't be the last we hear about this....
