Bob Knight accused of groping women at spy agency

Bob Knight accused of groping women at spy agency”

The Washington Post reports that Knight was accused of making suggestive comments, hugging a woman tightly around the chest and hitting another on the buttocks.

Knight, 76, denied the accusations and prosecutors did not bring charges against him.

According to the Post, the FBI investigated the case, but law enforcement chose to end the investigation without filing charges in 2016, but the allegations are disturbing. The matter was thoroughly investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Army.

"Bob did nothing wrong and there is NO evidence to prove that he did".

"Mr. Knight denies any kind of wrongdoing whatsoever, and there was no credible evidence to support any of it", Voyles, Knight's attorney, told our media partners at the IndyStar.

There were multiple witnesses to some of the allegations against Knight, according to the Post.

The Post report states that four women who worked at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) alleged that Knight had groped or touched them inappropriately when Knight visited the NGA on July 10, 2015 to give a speech on leadership.

The investigations lasted a year, but are only now being made available to the public. Some employees had expressed concern with Knight's attendance prior to the event, according to the Post. Cardillo, 55, said he had "failed" to instill a "culture of respect" at the agency and pledged to fix the problem. He is inarguably one of the greatest coaches in the history of the sport.

The back story of how Bobby Knight ended up as a guest speaker at the little-known spy agency dates to the 1960s, when he was the young head coach of the Army men's basketball team at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
