ESPN's "30 for 30" to feature Bob Knight's downfall at IU in upcoming documentary


The end of the Bob Knight era at Indiana University will be told again this spring.

ESPN Films released a trailer Thursday night for "The Last Days of Knight," as part of their "30 for 30" series of sports documentaries.

The film was produced by Robert Abbott, then a producer for CNN/SI who worked on the original story in March 2000 about IU guard Neil Reed's claim that Knight choked him during a 1997 practice. Video obtained by CNN/SI supported Reed's story, even as Knight backers denied the report.

Knight was fired in September 2000 following an incident with a student after then-IU President Myles Brand had implemented a "zero-tolerance policy" in regards to the coach's conduct.

The network did not give an exact release date for the documentary's debut.
