As with most sports programs around the country, Duke is preparing for a future without Coach K and his head coaching legacy. With that in mind, we thought it would be a fun idea to introduce you to a member of current Duke’s coaching staff and his thoughts on the basketball program.
In what can only be described as a bizarre irony, the man who will be tasked with replacing Duke University’s legendary basketball coach, Mike Krzyzewski, is none other than one of Coach K’s top assistant coaches, Jon Scheyer. Scheyer played his college ball at Duke, under Coach K, and went on to spend four years as a player in the NBA. After that, he had a successful career as an assistant under Coach K at Duke, Boston College, North Carolina, and now Duke. Last week, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Scheyer had been offered the job. He has yet to accept.
