It’s official: Bob Knight will not attend the ceremony inducting him into the IU Athletics Hall of Fame.

The University confirmed Knight’s planned absence in a press release today.

IU Athletics Director Fred Glass said Knight chose not to attend because he didn’t want to detract from other members of the 2009 induction class.

“Coach Knight expressed his tremendous appreciation for the support his teams were given by the IU student body and fans all over the state of Indiana and the contribution that support made to the success of his teams," Glass said.

"Coach Knight also noted that there is no one he appreciates more than his players, who he said were the most responsible for the success the program had during his tenure.”

At the ceremony, Knight will be represented by longtime friend and 2008 inductee Bob Hammel.
