Knight was ousted from Indiana in the fall of 2000, a few months after CNN ran a report about Reed with video of the incident. Knight began coaching the Hoosiers during the 1971-72 season, and he won 662 games and three national championships with the program.
Knight was the head coach at Texas Tech for seven seasons after leaving Indiana and went on to work as a college basketball analyst for ESPN. In 2017, it was reported Knight was accused of groping four women after giving a speech at a U.S. spy agency in 2015.
