Bobby Knight to host reality TV show

LUBBOCK, Texas - Bob Knight will give one Texas Tech student the chance to play on his team in a reality show hosted by the Hall of Fame coach.

Sixteen students will attend “Knight School,” the name of the show set to air on ESPN in February, and Knight will whittle the class to one during six one-hour episodes. Filming will begin in late September.

That player will have endured what all Knight players do — long hours of drills, conditioning and instruction — and will have chance to be a walk-on for the 2006-07 season.

“It’s a great opportunity for the kids at Texas Tech who want to have a shot at playing for a legend as well as learning from a legend,” said Robert Lundgren, one of the show’s executive producers with Knoxville, Tenn.-based RIVR Media.

Knight was out of town and unavailable to comment Friday. He told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal that in addition to the tryout format, filming will include shots of the campus and the students in class and in other activities.

“From a public relations standpoint, this couldn’t be any better for Texas Tech,” Knight said.

And as far as Bobby Knight having a show...let's just pray he doesnt get mad at the people on the show and doesnt throw a chair at them!
