Coach K retiring


Mike Krzyzewski’s legendary coaching career is reportedly nearing its end.

According to Jeff Goodman of Stadium, the longtime Duke men’s basketball coach will retire following this upcoming season. The 74-year-old Krzyzewski, known to most as "Coach K," has been the head coach of the Blue Devils since 1980.

A three-time Naismith College Coach of the Year and five-time ACC Coach of the Year, Krzyzewski has a 1097-302 (.784) all-time record at Duke with 25+ wins in 22 of the last 24 seasons dating back to 1997-98. He led the Blue Devils to 24 straight NCAA Tournament appearances from 1996 to 2019 before missing the Big Dance this season.

Duke assistant and former player Jon Scheyer is believed to be the heir apparent to Coach K, and an announcement to that end could be made as soon as Wednesday afternoon, according to Goodman.
