Bobby Knight Wants Georgia Job?

Feb 2, 2009 11:04 AM

Bobby Knight is reportedly interested in the vacant coaching job at Georgia.

"He doesn't want it to look as if he's pursuing the job. He?d like to be offered it, and if offered, he'd take it," said a source.

"He doesn't want it to look as if he's looking for work, but I can assure you that he'd like to have the job. It's the idea of coaching a team in the Southeastern Conference that appeals to him. There are just so many things he could do for Georgia basketball. This would be his last stop, and he likes that."
