Trine University Lands Bob Knight For Their 2010 Commencement Speaker

Ever heard of Trine University? I haven’t either, but apparently, the small private university located in Angola, Indiana has enough pull to land one Robert Montgomery Knight as theĀ  commencement speaker for this year’s graduation ceremonies.

University president Earl Brooks II says Knight’s respect for learning and ability to instill character in his players will make him an inspiring speaker for the 1,400-student school on May 8.

The private school in Angola said Tuesday that Knight would also receive an honorary doctor of public service degree in recognition of his commitment to improving the lives of young people.

Oh, Coach Knight would be more than happy to instill some character into the graduating class of 2010 at Trine University. Is choking allowed?

In any event, it should be an entertaining speech and despite how the students may personally feel about Coach Knight, the fact that he will be delivering the commencement speech is inevitable, so they should relax and enjoy it.
