Bobby Knight: Fired After 29 Years

Will Murphy from member station WFIU in Bloomington Indiana reports that Bobby Knight, Indiana University's head basketball coach, has been fired. He coached the Hoosiers for 29 years. Knight has a history of violent outbursts, and a recent incident between the coach and a student led IU officials to believe he violated a school policy designed to keep the coaches temper under control.
