Bobby Knight visits ‘Feherty,’ lectures on the fine art of chair-throwing

Bobby Knight knows the first line of his obituary will involve a thrown chair. But rather than run from that ugly little episode in his past, he's embraced it, and on a special college basketball-themed "Feherty" on the Golf Channel he teaches David Feherty the finer elements of chair-slinging.

In the episode scheduled to air April 1 on the Golf Channel, Knight discusses his life, legacy and coaching philosophy. And he also reveals his favorite golfer, one Jack Nicklaus: “When Jack was playing, I always rooted for him. There was something about him that I felt that very, very few great athletes had, and that was a real humble approach to the sport and a great individual humility in what he accomplished.”

“These days the polarizing bear of a coach is a lot more cuddly than he was in his growling, grizzly days on the bench," Feherty says in introducing the show. "He’s actually now just one big, lovable teddy bear … usually. But he still scared the living crap out of me.”
