Good thing for Bobby Knight that YouTube didn't exist while he was at Indiana. The fiery Hoosiers coach had several "gone wild" moments. But take a look at some others, before we get to the General.
Ohio State coach Woody Hayes is restrained by his own team after he struck a Clemson player during the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., on Dec. 29, 1978. The outburst got the legendary coach fired.
It was no secret that Texas Tech coach Mike Leach could get mouthy with his players, but the school felt he went too far when he allegedly ordered a player with a concussion to stay in a dark equipment room during practice. (cont.)
The player happened to be Adam James, the son of former ESPN analyst and NFL player Craig James. Leach was ultimately terminated.
It's not often you hear about abusive behavior with golf coaches, but the verbal tirade by Matt Mahanic at Huntingdon College would make Bobby Knight blush. The six-minute audio rant laced with f-bombs and belittling his team, promptly got him fired.
When Bobby Knight choked Neil Reed during a 1997 practice, and video of the incident surfaced, it ultimately led to the firing of the embattled Indiana coach in 2000.
Known as a motivational leader, Knight thought it would be funny to pull out a bullwhip during a 1992 NCAA Tournament practice. The joke backfired when he pretended to use it on Calbert Cheaney, an African-American.
