Knight won’t accept check

Bob Knight will not accept a $75,000 check from school alumni to settle a lawsuit Knight had filed against Indiana, according to a story on ESPN.com.

Knight filed the lawsuit against Indiana claiming it didn't properly defend him when he was sued by former assistant coach Ron Felling.

"The Indiana University administration recently made a public announcement on a very private issue that I was being sent a check for $75,000 from alumni donations to cover expenses I incurred as an employee at Indiana University," Knight said in a statement in the story. "Indiana University has refused for nine years to take care of their obligation in this matter. I did not know until that this check was sent to my attorney. Upon finding out about it, I immediately gave him instructions to send the check back.

"In all the years I coached at Indiana and elsewhere, I never accepted a thing from alumni and I don't intend to start now. This issue is with the university, not with the alumni."
