Mike Krzyzewski, the legendary “Coach K," has served as the Duke men’s basketball head coach for more than 30 years. He has enjoyed immense success, winning four NCAA National Championships, 13 ACC Tournament championships and many other titles. Coach K was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2001 and is currently the coach of the U. S. men’s national basketball team.
In 2011, Coach K became the “winningest” coach in NCAA Division I men’s basketball history by surpassing the record of his former coach and mentor, Bob Knight. He also has won the most NCAA tournament games among active coaches.
As a tribute to Duke’s basketball leader, the basketball court in Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium is named for Coach K, and the area outside of the stadium--where students live in tents to get the best possible seats for home games--is known as Krzyzewskiville.
