Hall of Fame college basketball coach Bob Knight will reportedly return to the scene of his greatest years Saturday for the first time since he was fired in 2000.

Knight will be on hand at Indiana University for a halftime celebration of the 40th anniversary of the No. 1-ranked 1979-1980 team, which starred Isiah Thomas and Randy Wittman, who both went on to play in the NBA, Sports Illustrated reported. The Athletic later confirmed the story.

Knight coached the Hoosiers from 1971-2000, winning three NCAA championships and 11 Big Ten Conference championships. He also led the 1984 gold-medal-winning US Olympic team, which featured Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullin.

The coach was canned by Indiana after a claim from former player Neil Reed that Knight choked him during a practice in 1997, which video appeared to back up, led the college to institute a “zero tolerance” policy on Knight’s legendary incendiary and abusive behavior.

Later that school year, a student who was not a player complained after the coach grabbed him and lectured him for showing disrespect, and Knight was fired after he refused to resign. The university’s president said the incident was one of multiple complaints after the zero-tolerance policy was put in place.

Knight went on to coach at Texas Tech from 2001-2008 and retired as the winningest coach in NCAA Division 1 history with 902 wins, a record since broken.

Although Knight publicly returned to the Indiana campus last year to attend a baseball game, if he appears on Saturday night, it will be the first time since he was fired that he appears in Assembly Hall, where the basketball team plays.

The reports have sent ticket prices for Saturday’s game against the unranked Purdue Boilermakers soaring, with prices ranging from $278-$767 on StubHub Saturday morning. Tickets for Thursday’s game against No. 17-ranked Iowa start at $17.
