One of his players at Army was Mike Krzyzewski, who has won four national championships as head coach at Duke University.

Knight’s Indiana teams reached the Final Four five times and won national championships in 1976, 1981 and 1987. His 1975-76 squad had a 32-0 record. The Hoosiers won 11 Big Ten regular season titles.

In 1979 Knight guided the United States Pan American team to a gold medal in Puerto Rico. In 1984 he led the U.S. National team to a gold medal in the Olympic Games.
