Add Bobby Knight to the list of coaches who have gotten behind the Republican party's frontrunner for president.

On Monday, the Washington Examiner reported the former Indiana and Texas Tech men's basketball coach will join Trump in a rally in Indianapolis on Wednesday, just six days before the Indiana Republican and Democratic presidential primaries will be held.

Knight led the Hoosiers to three NCAA championships during his 30 years as coach. He was dismissed from the team in 2000 after a video surfaced of him putting his hand on the neck of a former player three years earlier. He also famously threw a chair during a game.

Last week, Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan introduced Trump at a campaign event in Buffalo, just one day before New York's primary election, which Trump won handily. Former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka has also endorsed Trump.
