Bobby Knight Inducted Into Indiana Hall of Fame

Despite his firing in 2000, Bob Knight, former Indiana University basketball coach, will be inducted into Indiana’s Hall of Fame.

Knight will be inducted into the university’s athletics Hall of Fame nearly a decade after he was fired for violating a zero-tolerance policy imposed by then-IU President Myles Brand.

New athletic director Fred Glass said in a statement:

“I am honored to have been a part of selecting this outstanding class of tremendous coaches and student-athletes”. “For my first Hall of Fame class to include heroes from my childhood as well as my student days is a dream come true.”

Knight could not be reached Saturday, but should be available for comment on Monday.
