article imageVideo: ESPN commentator Bobby Knight falls asleep on live TV

During a live segment at the Final Four, ESPN basketball commentator Bobby Knight was caught sleeping. His eyes were closed, his head buried in his hands when the cameras focused on him. Co-analyst Digger Phelps had to nudge him back awake.
Sun Sentinel reports the former Indiana Hoosiers coach appears to have taken advantage of the cameras cutting to a panel for a quick snooze, and was caught in the act when the cameras cut back to his panel.
According to Daily mail, Knight, nicknamed "the General," is widely considered one of the most successful coaches in the history of men's college basketball and also one of the more colorful characters. His is famous for his outbursts of violent temper. He once threw a chair into the court during a game because he did not like the referee's decision. On another occasion, he was arrested for assault on the court.
Some viewers have suggested that after so many years he's probably seen it all and there simply isn't anything fresh and exciting in the game to keep him awake, even on live TV.
But Sports Grid suggested, tongue-in-cheek, that Knight was possibly "thinking super hard" about his next comments on air.
