Mike Krzyzewski Rumors
“I was looking at my career like, ‘Maybe I should do something different.’ It was (2005),” Coach K told Colin Cowherd on Thursday. “USA Basketball was offered to me five years later and I not only scratched that itch, I scratched enough where I would never have that itch. I love the pro game, I loved coaching the pro players. I think if today I was 57 and had won a few National Championships, I think there’d be a better chance I would be a pro coach in today’s college game than at that time.”
Jeff Goodman: Mike Krzyzewski says he’s not retiring due to the changing landscape of college basketball. “The reason we’re doing this is because Mickie and I have decided the journey is gonna be over in a year.”
Jeff Goodman: Coach K talks about spending more time with his grandchildren as one of the primary reasons why he’s stepping away in a year. The one main theme of this news conference is how thankful and appreciative Coach K is of his family.
