Knight settles with aide

September 4, 2002


— Bob Knight will pay $25,000 to a former assistant coach after signing an agreement in which he admitted to shoving Ron Felling in anger, Felling's attorney said Tuesday.

William Potter, Felling's attorney, said Knight agreed to the conditions Friday after coming to Indianapolis for a mediation hearing.

"I think it was clear when we walked out that we had called his bluff," Potter told The Associated Press. "It harkens back to the playground, and when we called his bluff, he backed out."

A phone message left at the office of Knight's attorney, Russell Yates in Denver, was not immediately returned. A Texas Tech spokeswoman said neither Bob or Pat Knight was available and referred all questions about the case to Yates.
