Is Coaching In Bob Knight's Future? He Answers The Question

Will we see Coach Bob Knight back on the basketball court anytime soon?   The sporting news asked Knight that and many other questions. 

Knight tells the sporting news, "Abe Lemons once told me, 'never say never,' and I haven't.  If the right opportunity came -- and the right opportunity would have to be determined by me -- I would not in any way preclude the possibility of coaching again."

Sporting News asked what he would look for in a new job.  He responds,  "You look at Texas Tech when I went there, and you say to yourself, 'can we win there?' And I had to say, "I don't know." 

Eventually, he came to the conclusion that Texas Tech could win.  Knight came to Texas Tech from Indiana University in 2001, and retired last season.
