Who is the better coach...Bobby Knight or Dean Smith?
Wednesday, January 03, 2007
Dean Smith’s 879 wins came in five fewer seasons than Bob Knight’s 880. Knight’s three NCAA titles to Smith’s two isn’t a big enough difference to settle the argument. While both have coached in 27 NCAA tournaments, Smith’s record of consecutive 20-win seasons (27) and his string of consecutive Sweet 16 appearances (13) is a record of consistency that Knight can’t approach. He guided his Tar Heels to the Final Four 11 times, while Knight got Indiana there just five times. (New Bern Sun Journal)
