Bobby Knight in the locker room

Did you ever want to hear what an angry coach says to his players in the locker room? We give you that chance. Bobby Knight, also known as “The General”, was most recently the head coach at Texas Tech before announcing his retirement on February 4, 2008. Knight has won more NCAA Division I games than any other head coach. In 2007 he achieved his 880th victory, which broke the record previously held by Dean Smith. His 900th victory came just over a year later.
