BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Bob Knight has made his first public appearance on Indiana University’s Bloomington campus since his departure following his 2000 firing.

The former IU basketball coach attended IU’s baseball doubleheader against Penn State Saturday afternoon with his longtime friend and former (Bloomington) Herald-Times sports editor Bob Hammel.

The Herald-Times reports IU officials were aware that Knight would attend the doubleheader. IU athletic director Fred Glass told The Herald-Times in a text message: “My understanding is that Coach Knight was in town for other reasons. He expressed interest in coming to a baseball game and obviously we were happy to facilitate that.”

Knight’s visit came two days after he and Hammel hosted a public question-and-answer event in nearby Greenwood on Thursday night.
