Pat Knight Appears To Have Picked Up Some Coaching Skills From His Father

Pat Knight, who is currently the head basketball coach of Texas Tech, is the son of Bobby Knight, just in case you weren't aware. And, if you watch this video above from last night's Tech game against Nebraska, you'll see that Pat learned a thing or two from his father, like how to go ape**** when you get jobbed on a call.

Personally, I think Knight had a legitimate argument here, but I don't think he handled it in the right way. Running onto the court to confront a ref never ends well, if you know what I mean. Here's what Pat should have done.

The chair always gets the officials' attention. It's simple, direct, and it works every time.

A feeling that teams 6th loss in 7games may have been the discussion if this had not taken place. Brilliant diversionary tactic Pat. However will probably not hold water in the long run.

he should follow the good aspect of coaching a game from his father but should eliminate the negative others.

He has learned well, his father's seeming "freak-outs" also only took place when he wanted to send a message to his team, I don't know if he has Robert Montgomery Knight's Xs and Os mastery, but he clearly gets the Psy Ops approach from the General.

Living in Lincoln, I watched the game last night from start to finish at a sports bar.  Pat Knight's effort was totally staged due to his team's lack of effort.  He was seen on camera asking his players "What the F are you guys doing out their?"  Finally the call which was typical for the game on both sides of the game set him off.  Nebraska played better defensively and deserved the victory.

Here we go again. I love the way coaches blow up every day in sports but unless there name is Knight it is no big deal!! Did Pat go to far, yes, did Bobby always go to far, yes. Why is it every other coach gets little to nothing said about their blow up? But everytime it is a person named Knight it becomes big news.

Hey, we made a big deal about the ref headbutting mascot.

Ref headbutting mascot > Pat Knight

Anger management should be required for everyone with the last name "knight"
