BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Bob Knight's attorney has notified Indiana University that the former coach will not accept the school's $75,000 offer to settle a lawsuit.
School spokesman Larry MacIntyre confirmed Tuesday the check was sent to Knight's attorney last week, and the school has received notification the money, donated by alums, will be returned.
Knight sued Indiana, claiming the school did not properly defend him when against a suit from Ron Felling, a former assistant coach. Knight settled that case in 2002 by paying Felling $25,000 and admitting that in 1999 he shoved Felling in anger after overhearing him criticize Knight's coaching and behavior.
Indiana fired Knight in 2000. He is to be inducted into Indiana's Hall of Fame next week.
