LUBBOCK, TEXAS (AP) - Pat Knight is telling The Associated Press he’s glad his firing from Texas Tech was handled professionally, unlike what happened when his famous father was ousted at Indiana in 2000.
Tech fired Knight on Monday, though he will coach the team in this week’s Big 12 tournament. He is 50-60 in his first Division I coaching job and his third full year as head coach. He had only one winning season after taking over for Bob Knight in February 2008.
He says he would have liked another year to prove himself but understands that college basketball is a business.
