Bob Knight will be calling his final game for ESPN on Thursday night, according to a report from Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated.
Knight will be courtside for the NIT Championship game between Stanford and Miami. ESPN has decided to not renew Knight’s contract which marks the end of the 74-year-old’s run with the network. Knight joined ESPN as a college basketball commentator in 2008.
What’s next for the legendary coach turned commentator? Only time will tell.
There is the possibility that Bob Knight could end up serving as a commentator for a different network, but for now his future remains unknown.
If Bob Knight calls it a career following the end of his seven-year tenure with the Worldwide Leader, it will have gone down as a memorable one.
During his time at ESPN, Knight made multiple appearances on the Selection Sunday Specials, SportsCenter and ESPN Radio.
Knight’s final broadcasting appearance is set to begin at 8 p.m. ET when the Stanford Cardinal and Miami Hurricanes tip-off at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
