  • Bob Knight to Coach in the Big East?; Seton Hall Closes Season on Poor Note

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    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 exclusively after his Red Raiders hammered Seton Hall, 87-69, in a first-round NIT game at the Prudential Center.

    **And read about Seton Hall’s bizarre season-ending NIT loss to Texas Tech here. Herb Pope was ejected for punching a Texas Tech player in his, shall we say, manly regions.

    “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.

    • Bob Knight In the Big East, sounds like another legendary coach In a tough leauge. Only thing Is Knight Is not fond or have deep recruiting roots out here In the east and will need to put together a super staff to go out and bring these kids In. One thing I do know about Knight though Is that he will bring kids In that want to be apart of something great, not these one and doners or kids that dont play to the best of their abilities. I think Seth Greenberg and Mike Rice should top the list of possible replacement coaches, V-Tech was a bubble team as well as the Hall partly beacuse of the OT loss they gave the Hall in Mexico and Rice led Robbert Morris to the NEC title and a hell of a game against Villanova In the first round of the NCAA tourney.
