Hello, Thank you for using this service. I wish to introduce myself. I am a Research Librarian with 20+ years of experience.

Robert Montgomery "Bob" Knight aka The General was coach for Army (1965-1971), then to Indiana (1971-2000) and his final stop at Texas Tech (2001-2008). Now he is an analyst for ESPN working usually with Brent Musburger.
