The FBI Reportedly Investigated Claims That Bobby Knight "Groped" Women At A U.S. Spy Agency

According to a report by The Washington Post, former men's basketball head coach Bobby Knight was investigated by the FBI after multiple women claimed he "groped" them at a U.S. spy agency.

Former basketball head coach Bobby Knight, who coached at both Indiana and Texas Tech before calling games for ESPN, was reportedly investigated by the FBI after a number of women claimed he groped them before and after a speech he gave at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. The Washington Post is the first to report the story.

Knight was investigated by the FBI, the U.S. Army, The Pengaton and Congress. Here's more:

The women accused Knight of a range of boorish behavior: from touching them on the shoulder while commenting on the attractiveness of their legs, to hugging them too tightly around the chest, to hitting them on the buttocks, according to documents compiled by investigators and Washington Post interviews with three of the women.

Knight's attorney, James Voyles, says there is no credible evidence to support the claims.

The incident in question took place back on July 10, 2015. Knight reportedly has not commented on the allegations.

Knight, one of the most successful head coaches in college basketball history, won three national titles at Indiana. He last coached at Texas Tech in 2008.
