Texas Tech coach now within 3 of Dean Smith's record

Bob Knight tied legendary Kentucky coach Adolph Rupp for second place on the career victory list Wednesday night as Texas Tech beat Louisiana Tech 66-59.

Knight’s 876th victory moved him within three of tying former North Carolina coach Dean Smith for the most in Division I history.

The 66-year-old Knight began his coaching career at Army in 1965. Six years later he moved to Indiana, where he won three national championships and coached for 29 seasons before being fired in 2000 for what school officials called a violation of a zero-tolerance behavior policy.

After a yearlong break, he took over at Texas Tech, which he has led to four straight 20-win seasons.
