BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) -Bob Knight will be putting a full-court press on college basketball fans this season, thanks to an expanded role as an ESPN analyst.
The Hall of Fame coach joined ESPN last year as a studio analyst for the postseason and will be a key player for the 2008-09 season. Knight, who often treated the media with disdain before joining it, will work Thursday night game telecasts, appear on SportsCenter, provide postseason studio analysis and be on ESPN radio.
The network said Tuesday he'll also be an analyst for select nonconference game telecasts other than Thursday and make onsite appearances on College GameDay.
Knight, who resigned as coach of Texas Tech on Feb. 4, also coached at Army and Indiana, where he won three national titles in his 29-year career in Bloomington, Ind.
Knight's first ESPN appearances will be on College GameDay from Chapel Hill, N.C., on Nov. 18 when Kentucky visits No. 1 North Carolina.
He will work with Brent Musburger on Thursday nights, beginning Jan. 15, and on other nights with Dan Shulman.
