After he was fired by Indiana University 20 years ago, Bob Knight vowed he would never return to campus. This spring, he ended his hiatus by making an appearance at a Hoosiers baseball game.
Now, it’s being reported that Knight will be a heck of a lot closer to his old stomping grounds.
According to the Herald Times, Knight has recently purchased a home in Bloomington with his wife, Karen. That report comes based on property transfer records from the Monroe County Assessor’s Office.
There have been reported concerns that Knight’s health is in decline. At a recent speaking event, Knight repeated stories several times. He did say that “the best days of my life were when I was at IU.”
Despite his firing and several controversial moments throughout his coaching career, Knight is still seen as a legendary figure at Indiana. He owned a 662-239 career record while leading the Hoosiers, guiding the program to 11 B1G regular season title, five Final Four appearances and three national championships from 1971-2000.
