(BLOOMINGTON) – Legendary Indiana University basketball coach Bob Knight has purchased a home just three miles from Assembly Hall, where he coached for 29 years.

Robert M. Knight and his wife, Karen, signed property records last week for a 4,840-square-foot home in the Shadow Creek subdivision across from College Mall on Moore’s Pike, according to Monroe County Assessor’s records.

Built by Brewer Fine Homes in 2018, the 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath house at 1519 S. Andrew Circle was purchased by the Knights for $572,500 on July 3.

It’s unclear whether the Knights will be living in the home full time. Bob Hammel, Knight’s longtime friend, and confidante and former sports editor for the Bloomington Herald-Times, told IndyStar Thursday morning the purchase was “news to me.”
