Report: Pitt Legend Brandin Knight Signs Two-Year Contract Extension With Rutgers

Published

on

According to a report by Nj.com, former Pitt basketball star and Pitt athletics Hall of Famer Brandin Knight received a two-year extension with Rutgers, keeping him in his role as associate head coach under Steve Pikiell.

Knight, who was inducted into the Pitt Athletics Hall of Fame in 2020, scored over 1,400 in his stellar career at Pitt. He set program records in career steals, career assists, and more, en route to having his Number 20 jersey retired by Pitt in 2009. He then went on to coach for more than ten years on Jamie Dixon’s Pitt staff before being hired by Rutgers. In his career, he has advanced to nine NCAA Tournaments as a coach and two as a player.

Knight was reportedly being targeted by Saint Peters for its head coaching position, but ultimately ended up back with the Scarlet Knights.

Don’t see your shirt hung from the rafters at the Pete. Probably don’t think Billy Knight or Charles Smith are legends either? Yeah, he is.

Knight had a great career. Not in the same category as Knight or Smith. Its ok to be great. A legend is another level. Knight and Smith had great careers at the next level.

Knight leads Pitt in assists for a career. 40 ahead of Sean Miller. Doesnt make him a legend.
