On the team he coaches, no less. (This is his first year as head coach at Lamar University in Texas. He didn't recruit these six seniors he very publicly excoriates after a loss to Stephen F. Austin University.)
Headcase Bobby Knight is this guy's dad.
Take a watch:
P. Knight: “I’ve never seen more F’s on report cards than I ever have since I got here. Missing classes, being late for workouts, missing workouts. … What I don’t think they understand is all that correlates together. If you’re not going to be a winner off the court, you’re not going to be a winner on the court.”
P. Knight: "We've had problems with these guys off the court, on the court, classroom, drugs. I mean, it's being late for stuff. All that stuff correlates together if you don't win games."
P. Knight: "These kids are stealing money by being on scholarship."
One wonders if Coach Knight and the Mayor of Philly should host an anti-punk confab.
Update: Throwing down the gauntlet does a program good - Knight receives kudos from fellow coaches; more potential recruits have expressed interest in LU; and some of the harshly criticized players responded well to the so-called rant.
