The play-calling crew on the Louisville-Marquette suggested hitting the ESPN.com site for more info. That was it? Right. Thanks for clearing that up.

On the court it means that his son, Pat, will take over as the head coach. Pat Knight was previously designated as the coach-in-waiting for the Red Raiders.

Stunning. I never thought that Bob Knight would ever quit in the middle of a season. Even if he seemed rather disinterested this season. He got past win #900 and that was enough.

All that is known, is that Bob Knight told the Texas Tech AD this morning that he was resigning. Since there is no information as to the why, expect speculation to run rampant. Resigning in the middle of the conference schedule, and without warning will do that.
