knight-errant capitalization

It may be gone soon, but the credit on this piece at Slate is:

Jack M. Balkin is knight professor of constitutional law and the First Amendment at Yale Law School.

Ho, good sir! Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony! None shall pass!

(Balkin actually holds a chair named after someone named Knight; he is not himself a knight.)
