INDIANA ALUM WANTS TO OVERTURN KNIGHT FIRING

Gojko Kasich doesn't expect Bob Knight to return as Indiana's basketball coach, but he does expect his alma mater to follow the law.

Kasich claims university president Myles Brand deliberately circumvented a state law by meeting separately with two groups of four school trustees before deciding to dismiss the Hall of Fame basketball coach.

Kasich believes that Brand was obviously attempting to dance around Indiana's Open Door Law, which requires that Brand make public any meeting with more than four trustees at a time. Kasich plans to file a lawsuit next week. He says he is not acting on Knight's behalf.

Meanwhile, Bob's son, Pat Knight, joined Akron's coaching staff as an assistant coach. Akron plays in the Mid-American Conference with the University at Buffalo. Pat Knight spent the last two seasons as one of his father's assistants, but left Indiana this month when his father was fired.
