NEW YORK (WISH) — Bob Knight is in New York prior to Monday’s presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Knight, a Donald Trump advocate, offered his opinion on the presidential race.
“I think he’s the best man, best person available, man or woman, to go on with the presidency,” said Knight, the legendary former Indiana University basketball coach. “There are lot of problems that exist and Donald Trump, above all else and maybe anyone else available, is a problem-solver.”
Knight appeared at a rally with Trump in Indianapolis in April.
“I’m willing to bet that in the last month, I’ve watched Donald Trump more than anybody has,” said Knight.
Media General National Correspondent Mark Meredith attempted to ask Knight about how the Hoosiers are looking for 2016-17.
“I have no idea,” said Knight, before walking off.
