The legendary Indiana Hoosiers coach, Bob Knight, has died at the age of 83.

His death was announced by his family’s organization on Wednesday, six days after turning 83.

One of the most famous and controversial coaches in American sports, “The General” led the Hoosiers for 29 seasons from 1971-2000, before retiring from coaching in 2008.
