Former Indiana University head basketball coach Bob Knight criticized UCLA legend John Wooden for his lack of control over Bruins booster Sam Gilbert when it came to recruiting.

Knight made pointed remarks during an interview for Undeniable with Joe Buck, which is scheduled to air Wednesday night on the Audience Network, per

“I have a lot of respect for Wooden as a coach, how he coached. He was a good coach,” he said. “But from then on, and I don’t mind saying it, I don’t respect Wooden, because he allowed Sam Gilbert to do whatever it took to recruit kids. And one time he told me, he said, ‘I just didn’t know how to deal with Sam Gilbert.’ And I’m saying to myself, ‘I damn sure could have dealt with him.'”
