Just over an hour ago, Stadium’s Jeff Goodman broke the news that legendary Duke Head Coach, Mike Krzyzewski, will be retiring from coaching at the conclusion of the 2021-22 season. This news comes almost exactly two months to the day when North Carolina’s legendary coach, Roy Williams, announced that he would be retiring from coaching.

It is becoming clear that Coach K is in the process of making Associate Head Coach, Jon Scheyer his replacement.

Coach K started coaching at Duke University in 1980 and holds a career record of 1,157-350. 1,084 of those wins coming with his 40-year career with Duke. Krzyzewski also carries five National Championships, 12 Final Fours, and 15 ACC Conference Tournament championships. It’s the end of an era in Durham, North Carolina.
