No more Bobby Knight?

Break out the Krackel, it appears Bobby Knight’s days of color commentary may soon be coming to an end. According to The Big Lead’s Jason McIntyre, Knight’s contract with ESPN is up after this season and he most likely will not be retained:

ESPN confirmed his contract is expiring after the season, but a spokesman would only say “no decisions have been made” about Knight’s future. The spokesman said Knight has a few games left in the regular season, perhaps an opening round NIT game, and the former coach will contribute to ESPN’s postseason coverage from the studio or perhaps on-site.

A call to Knight’s cell phone went unanswered. Of the five people I spoke with who are aware of Knight’s situation, four think ESPN won’t extend him; a fifth believes maybe it is Knight who will decide he’d rather walk away.

Poor guy. Shot clocks really are hard to understand.

    … and too bad he wasn’t in a position to try and choke Latrell Sprewell instead of that pasty little white kid.
