Mike Krzyzewski will make a final run at another national championship with Duke.
The all-time coaching wins leader in Division I men's basketball announced Wednesday that next season will be his last with the Blue Devils, the program he built into one of the sport's bluebloods. The school in Durham, North Carolina, also named former Duke player and associate head coach Jon Scheyer as Krzyzewski's successor starting with the 2022-23 season.
"My family and I view today as a celebration," Krzyzewski, a member of both the Naismith Memorial and College Basketball Hall of Fame said in a statement released Wednesday evening.
Stadium first reported news of the 74-year-old Krzyzewski's final season with Duke, which he has led to five national championships, most recently in 2015. He has 1,170 career wins going back to his time at Army, with 1,097 coming during 41 years with the Blue Devils and their frantic fans who have made playing at famously hostile Cameron Indoor Stadium so difficult.
