Bob Knight Following In Rex Ryan’s Footsteps, To Endorse Trump
April 25 / Gregg Sussman / SportsGrid
Back last September, we told you that Bobby Knight was a big Donald Trump supporter. It makes sense for the outspoken former Indiana head coach and ESPN commentator. Knight's brash style, meshes well with Trump's in your face politics. This Wednesday, Donald Trump is campaigning in the state of Indiana. Who better to have by his side than the former IU head coach?
Following in the vein of Chris Christie, Ben Carson, and most notably Rex Ryan, Bob Knight will stand alongside Trump on the podium. Knight's support of Trump isn't the interesting part of the story. The fact that Knight will stand with Trump in Indiana intrigues us most. Knight will notoriously not return to Bloomington after being fired over 15 years ago by the school. It doesn't matter that the president of the school at the time, Myles Brand, has been dead for the last seven years. Nor does the occasion matter. Knight refused to return to the school when they were honoring the undefeated 1976 championship team. But Knight believes in Trump and that outweighs the animosity of the state for Knight.
