On behalf of the Knight Family, we thank you for your thoughts and prayers.  As many have heard, my dad was hospitalized over the weekend with an illness and has since been released from the hospital.  We ask for your privacy as he is cared for and resting at home in good hands. Coach always taught us, and those that played for him, the importance of fighting through adversity and he and our family thank you for the tremendous amount of support you have shown and given during this time. We appreciate your continued thoughts and prayers.

– Pat Knight

The 82-year-old Knight was hospitalized on Friday.
