The General put his weight behind The Donald on Wednesday night.
Bobby Knight, he of three national championships with Indiana and the reputation as one of the brashest coaches of all time, endorsed Donald Trump, the frontrunner for the Republican nomination, at a rally in Indianapolis.
“You folks are taking a look at the most prepared man in history to step in as President of the United States,” Knight said. “That man right there.”
The Hall of Famer Knight won 902 games in his career at West Point, Indiana and Texas Tech. He was famously ousted by the Hoosiers in 2000 after university president Myles Brand had instituted a “no-tolerance” policy on Knight after a string of controversies that defined the coach as much as his winning.
He retired after seven seasons with Texas Tech in 2008.
