INDIANAPOLIS — Bob Knight is returning to Indiana after all.
The former Hoosiers coach will speak at a Dec. 17 fundraiser in Indianapolis to benefit the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.
The event comes less than six weeks after Knight missed a ceremony inducting him into Indiana University’s athletics Hall of Fame in Bloomington.
Knight’s exclusion from the IU hall had been a contentious issue since then-President Myles Brand fired him in September 2000 for violating a zero-tolerance policy.
Knight said he would not attend the ceremony because he did not want to detract from the other inductees.
