Bob Knight to Coach in the Big East?; Seton Hall Closes Season on Poor Note
NEWARK, N.J. –– Rutgers Athletic Director Tim Pernetti and St. John’s Athletic Director Chris Monasch might want to pick up the phone and give Bob Knight a courtesy call.
Pat Knight, Bob’s son and head coach at Texas Tech, said his father would consider coaching again and interested schools should give him a ring.
“If I’m St. John’s or Rutgers, to me, you gotta be an idiot … if you’re an AD or president, it doesn’t hurt to call,” Knight told SNY.tv exclusively after his Red Raiders hammered Seton Hall, 87-69, in a first-round NIT game at the Prudential Center.

“Man, I never got someone even knee me that hard in a practice by accident. He just took a swing,” said Darko Cohadarevic.**Elsewhere in the NIT, senior guard Jerome Dyson scored 13 of his 18 points in the second half as Jim Calhoun’s current team, UConn survived his old outfit, Northeastern, 59-57, in Storrs.
