(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - An Attorney for Former Indiana University Basketball Coach Bob Knight has notified the university that Knight will not accept a $75,000 offer to settle a lawsuit.
A school spokesman confirmed the return of the check, which was sent to Knight's attorney last week.
The $75,000 was raised by university alumni. Knight sued Indiana, claiming the school did not defend him properly in a lawsuit filed by former IU Assistant Coach Ron Felling.
Knight paid felling $25,000 dollars to settle that suit in 2002.
Indiana fired Knight in 2000.
He is scheduled to be inducted into the University's Hall of Fame next week.
