Legendary NCAA Basketball Coach and Analyst, ESPN College GameDay
Bob Knight is among the youngest head coaches to have won 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700 and 800 career games. He is the only coach to have reached 900 wins. When he was 62-years old, he became the youngest of the four coaches to ever reach the milestone of 800 victories.
Bob Knight is his own man, one who represents high principles, expectations and demands for his players, his coaching staff and, most of all, himself. But he is foremost an educator. His ability to teach young men the game of basketball and the game of life is one of his most noted characteristics. Coach Knight has proven over and over again that he is the finest basketball coach in America. No other coach can cite NCAA and NIT championships and Olympic and Pan American gold medals among his achievements. There are only two coaches in the history of collegiate basketball who have won more than the three national championships Knight has won during his career.
Committed to mentoring, Coach Knight's coaching techniques and teaching skills place him in great demand as a speaker around the country. High school coaches flock to his clinics and his summer camp for youngsters is always filled to capacity with a waiting list.
Bob Knight's legacy stretches far beyond the realm of his numerous achievements and highly recognized status on the hard court. In August 2003, he was honored as the first inductee in The Vince Lombardi Titletown Legends. The honor and responsibility pays tribute to those individuals who possess the characteristics instilled by Vince Lombardi in all his players: Dedication, Teamwork, Respect, Love, Family and Discipline.
Bob is currently an analyst for ESPN College GameDay.
