More Info Surfaces About Knight

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana University trustees investigating coach Bob Knight are recommending the probe be expanded to include new claims of misconduct that could lead to his dismissal, according to a broadcast report.

Indianapolis television station WRTV, quoting unidentified sources, reported Tuesday that trustees heard new accusations against the controversial basketball coach at a closed meeting last week. The report did not specify what those accusations were, but quoted one unidentified trustee as saying they were ``pretty ugly stuff.''

John Walda, the president of the board of trustees, and Frederick Eichhorn, a trustee and former president of the Indiana State Bar Association, were appointed by IU president Myles Brand in March to investigate a claim by former player Neil Reed. Reed, who transferred from Indiana in 1997, claimed Knight grabbed him by the throat and choked him during one practice.

The two also are investigating claims that Knight once kicked Brand out of a practice and also showed players a soiled piece of toilet paper.

Knight has denied the allegations. A university spokesman said Knight was out of town Tuesday and could not be reached for comment.
