Bob Knight spent more than 41 seasons as a head coach at the Division I level, leading basketball teams at Army, Indiana University and Texas Tech. He is among the youngest head coaches to have won 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700 and 800 career games. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1991 and the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011. Knight recently authored The Power of Negative Thinking: An Unconventional Approach to Achieving Positive Results and is currently an analyst for ESPN’s College GameDay.
“Bob Knight’s focus and drive are well known: He is a true champion and an inspirational coach in both basketball and life,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer at Ellie Mae. “His unique perspective of ‘preparing to win’ instead of ‘hoping to win’ could easily apply to the mortgage industry, which should give Encompass Experience attendees new insight that they can apply to their own businesses.”
