Regardless of Trey Thompkins' comment, this would not be a good thing.
If you want to see what happens when you hire tired old legends who are way, way past their prime check out exhibits A and B....Lou Holtz* and Steve Spurrier at SC. Knight would give us three years tops, and leave us with what? No recruits and right back where we are now...looking for a coach.
The guy left his own son with nothing to work with. They were 16-14 last year, and they are 11-10 now. What do you think he'd leave us with? We aren't even family.
Over their last three seasons both Felton and Knight each coached 86 games, and each left their jobs before the end of the season. Their records were:
- 45-41 for Felton
48-38 for The General
It'll never happen. Although, I did like the line from "SAWB" who sent this to me, it is nice to "see Furman Bisher write about something other than golf and hating people under age 74."

*As a point of comparison, Lou Holtz was 68 (Knight's current age) when he retired at South Carolina.
