Bob Knight was a legendary coach at Indiana and Texas Tech. That's not even a question. At one point, Knight had won more games than any coach in NCAA history. However, his volatile temper, choking former player Neil Reid, and famous incident throwing a chair across the court have perhaps overshadowed, to a degree, Knight's coaching career.
Finally, Knight's motives behind his legendary outburst have come to light courtesy of former Hoosiers guard and current college basketball analyst Dan Dakich. Dakich claims Knight was looking for a sport coat that he wanted to toss at referee London Bradley, but instead threw a chair in a moment for the ages.
Knight's temper was apparently so legendarily explosive that the entire Hoosier team was completely numb to Knight's outburst.
We hate to break it to you guys; that's not normal behavior.
