BRISTOL, Conn., Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Recently retired Bob Knight, the winningest basketball coach in major college history, has joined ESPN as an analyst, the U.S. cable network announced Thursday.

Knight will begin his duties March 12, working as a studio analyst throughout the NCAA tournament, ESPN said. He is also to appear on the network's "SelectionSunday" specials.

"I think ESPN has been real good for college basketball and I look forward to working with some of their people who I have known a long time," Knight said.

The longtime coach, who retired from Texas Tech Feb. 4, has 902 college coaching career victories.
