Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski will retire following the 2021-22 season, according to Jeff Goodman at Stadium.

The winningest coach in Division I history with 1,170 career victories, Coach K hung five national championship banners in Cameron Indoor in his 41 seasons of coaching.

Widely regarded as the best head coach since UCLA’s John Wooden, Krzyzewski has 1,097 career wins at Duke, securing 12 Final Four appearances and 12 regular-season ACC championships.

According to ESPN, Krzyzewski and the Blue Devils are in the final steps of locking in associate head coach Jon Scheyer as K’s replacement. The starting point guard of Duke’s 2010 championship squad has been on Krzyzewski’s staff since 2013 and was the lead recruiter for Duke standouts like Jayson Tatum and Zion Williamson.

Combined with his five years as the head coach of the Army basketball program, the 74-year-old Krzyzewski holds a 1,170-361 record.
