Villanova assistant basketball coach Doug West is leaving the school for a business opportunity, according to a source. West, a 1989 Villanova graduate, spent 3 years on Jay Wright's staff. He will be replaced by Keith Urgo, who is being promoted from manager of basketball operations. Baker Dunleavy, who played at Villanova from 2002 to '06, will replace Urgo. Dunleavy is the son of former Sixers player and NBA head coach Mike Dunleavy. An official announcement is expected today.

The sacking of Indiana University's head basketball coach, Bob Knight, has been a little like evicting the Pope from the Vatican. His three-decade pontificate has included three national championships, 11 conference titles, an Olympic victory and the fourth best all-time record in college basketball. For decades this record was enough for the university to excuse his fatal flaw, an uncontrollable temper abetted by an almost superhuman arrogance. . .For all his thuggishness, Mr. Knight ran a squeaky-clean program, and he made sure that his athletes graduated, but . . . he plainly thought he was above the law. Whatever his effect on college sport, his passing will reverberate through a state where . . . the fondest dream of every lanky teenager had been to play for Bobby Knight.
