Bob Knight on former IN bosses: 'I hope they're all dead'

Knight coached at IN from 1971-2000.

Knight wasn't finished, though, as Patrick leaned in to point out that most, if not all, of those in the university's administration at the time are no longer there.

Former college basketball coach Bob Knight said Friday that he hopes the IN administrators who were at the school when he was sacked IN 2000 "are all dead".

The legendary IN head coach, who helmed the Hoosiers for three decades and led them to three national championships, has no interest IN returning to the school, as he told Dan Patrick IN a mind-blowing exchange Friday.

Mike Mayock: No 'official' talk with Redskins on GM job
Regardless, there's no outright denial lurking in Mayock's statement, nor a claim that the report of candidacy is #fakenews. At most, Mayock's message is that he's staying put until the draft and that, after that, anything can happen.

"As far as the hierarchy at Indiana University at that time, I have absolutely no respect for those people", he said.

"Well, I think I've always really enjoyed the fans".

Knight then said: "I hope they're all dead".

The man who fired Knight, former IN president Myles Brand, died of pancreatic cancer IN 2009.

The former Florida State star won a Super Bowl with the Steelers during the 2008 season and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2014. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter , the Dolphins signed the Pro Bowl player to a two-year contract worth $12 million.

Patrick: "I know some of them are".

When Patrick informed him most of the officials present during Knight's tenure have left the school, Knight, infamous for his quick temper, dropped the vengeful hammer.

Despite his success, Knight was sacked for what the university called "uncivil, defiant and unacceptable" behavior that included alleged verbal abuse of an IN female official. He was sacked in September after a student accused Knight of grabbing his arm.

Knight responded: "I hope the rest of them go". "That in mind, I have no interest in ever going back to that university".
