BOB KNIGHTS SON PAT UNDER EARLY SCRUTINY
Mon, 24 Oct 2011 01:18 PM EDT

BEAUMONT, Texas — Lamar is looking into whether new men’s basketball coach Pat Knight violated an NCAA rule by allowing two recruits to speak with his father, former Indiana coach Bob Knight. Basketball betting lines

The Indianapolis Star reported that Indiana high school players Donnell Minton and Jason Smith, who both verbally committed to Lamar, talked with Bob Knight by phone during a recent campus visit. Pat Knight, who played for his father at Indiana in the early 1990s, was hired by Lamar in April after being fired by Texas Tech.

The Star reported that Pat Knight called his father, then handed the phone to the recruits. Bob Knight works as a college basketball analyst for ESPN. Basketball lines

Lamar interim athletic director and compliance officer Jason Henderson said Thursday the school has been investigating since the newspaper contacted the athletic department.

“We’re going over everything, and doing all our research, to make sure we get everything correct,” Henderson said in a phone interview. “We’re moving forward as fast as we can.”

NCAA spokesman Erik Christianson said in an email that, “Generally speaking, telephone calls to prospects can only be made by coaching staff members or those listed in the exceptions.” Those exceptions include the school’s president or chancellor, academic advisers and compliance officers.

Pat Knight already should know one simple truth. When you are the son of Bob Knight you are in a fishbowl and will always have eyes and ears focused on your everty gesture and transaction. This is not a very good start for a new coach to have to go into damage control mode with the press, NCAA and the university athletic department. Bob Knight, also knwos better to get on the phone with his sons recruits. 

NCAA rules state: “All telephone calls made to and received from a prospective student-athlete (or the prospective student-athlete’s parents, legal guardians or coaches) must be made and received by the head coach or one or more of the assistant coaches who count toward the numerical limitations.”

Henderson says Lamar is evaluating what NCAA rule or rules may apply to this case.

“There’s a lot of information,” Henderson said. “We just want to make sure we get it all right.”

Maybe next time dear old dad can just stop by the gym and drop off some lunch for his son and smile at the recruits, Ist that also against teh rules?
