CBS can’t lure Knight

November 10, 2000


— Bob Knight is not headed to a TV booth any time soon.

Knight, fired in September after nearly 30 years as Indiana's coach, had talks with CBS Sports about a job as a college basketball commentator, but the sides did not come to an agreement. CBS did not make an offer. CBS Sports president Sean McManus contacted Knight's agent after Knight was fired by Indiana.

CBS has an opening for a college basketball analyst to work alongside veteran play-by-play announcer Dick Enberg. Enberg's previous partner, Al McGuire, stepped down shortly before the NCAA tournament last season because of illness.

Knight is focusing his attention on speaking engagements and writing a book.
