LUBBOCK, Texas. - A spokesman for Texas Tech athletic director Gerald Myers says men's basketball coach Bob Knight has resigned, effective immediately.

The program will be turned over to his son, Pat Knight, who was named head coach-designate in 2005.

Knight's resignation was first reported by the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. Chris Cook, a spokesman for Myers, confirmed the resignation.

Knight has 902 career wins, more than any coach in the history of Division I men's basketball.

The 67-year-old has been a head coach for 42 years at three Division I schools. He got his 100th victory at Army, then moved to Indiana, where his Hoosiers went 662-239 and won three national championships from 1971-2000.
     
His first NCAA title came in 1976 when Indiana went undefeated, a feat no team has done since. In 1984, he coached the U.S. Olympic team to a gold medal in Los Angeles.
