"FBI investigated complaints that Bobby Knight groped women at U.S. spy agency"

Four women who worked at the spy agency alleged that Knight had groped or touched them inappropriately in brief encounters before and after his speech, according to investigative documents and interviews with more than a dozen NGA officials.


Privately, however, even some of Cardillo’s senior advisers said they warned him that Knight might not be a good fit. In an interview with The Post at NGA headquarters, Cardillo defended the invitation, saying that while he knew Knight might make waves with his remarks, he never dreamed the coach would find himself under criminal investigation.

“Last thing on my mind, furthest thing from my mind,” Cardillo said. “As a kid and as an adult, I’ve been around him for these things before and he’s pretty entertaining and he tells some interesting vignettes.”
