Bobby Knight (illness) released from hospital


Bobby Knight was released from a Bloomington, Ind.-area hospital Monday after a weekend stay dealing with an "acute illness."

His son, Pat Knight, released a statement Monday afternoon.

"On behalf of the Knight Family, we thank you for your thoughts and prayers," the statement read. "As many have heard, my dad was hospitalized over the weekend with an illness and has since been released from the hospital. We ask for your privacy as he is cared for and resting at home in good hands. Coach always taught us, and those that played for him, the importance of fighting through adversity and he and our family thank you for the tremendous amount of support you have shown and given during this time. We appreciate your continued thoughts and prayers."

Knight was hospitalized Friday night, according to an email sent to former Hoosiers players Monday morning, asking for prayers for the Hall of Fame coach.

Knight, 82, coached the Hoosiers to three national championships (1976, 1981, 1987) and five Final Fours from 1971-2000. His 1976 team is considered one of the best college teams of all-time. He then led Texas Tech to four NCAA Tournament appearances from 2001-08.

Including his time as the head coach at Army to begin his coaching career, Knight retired with a record of 902-371. He ranks sixth all-time on the career victories list, one behind Roy Williams. Mike Krzyzewski is No. 1 with 1,202 wins.

Knight was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1991.
