Mike Krzyzewski will retire as head coach of the Duke Blue Devils after next season, and his replacement has already been approved.
According to the Stadium’s Jeff Goodman, there was a meeting on Wednesday and Jon Scheyer was approved as Duke’s next head coach.
Scheyer was reported to be the favorite to replace Coach K from the moment the news was announced. Some familiar names, reportedly were the runners-up in the situation.
Scheyer, 33, played for Duke from 2006 to 2010. He later played professionally for Spain, Israel and the G League. Scheyer became assistant coach K’s staff in 2014 and was promoted to associate head coach in 2018.
