Bob Knight reportedly interested in UNLV job

Does Bob Knight have the coaching itch again?

According to a report in Las Vegas Journal-Review, the legendary ex-Indiana coach has expressed interest in the head coaching job at UNLV. The position became available when Lon Kruger left for Oklahoma.

Knight, who retired from Texas Tech in February of 2008, has been working as an analyst for ESPN.

Frontrunners for the vacancy are reportedly former UNLV players Reggie Theus and Dave Rice. Theus starred for the Bulls in the late 1970s and early ‘80s.
