Take The Chair With Ya, Bob.

What happens when you take someone who is controlling, violent, hotheaded, and one of the finest basketball minds in the nation? Well, when you’re a university Athletic Department, you watch as your win total and the cost of your PR department’s “damage control” team rise.

Bobby Knight has retired. The man who has spent time in the news for several “unconventional” coaching practices now gets coverage for the sheer strangeness of his farewell. But then again, it’s no surprise:

“I guess you can never be surprised at some of the things Bob does,” former UCLA coach John Wooden told the AP.

I don’t think I’ve ever been surprised by Knight. Appalled, perhaps, but not surprised.
