10/18/17 – Mike Krzyzewski, Men’s Head Basketball Coach, Duke

The guest speaker for this meeting will be Mike Krzyzewski, Head Men’s Basketball Coach at Duke (as if you didn’t know). In 37 seasons at Duke, Mike Krzyzewski – a Naismith Hall of Fame coach, five-time national champion and 12-time Final Four participant – has built a dynasty that few programs in the history of the game can match.

Krzyzewski will enter the 2017-18 season with a 1,071-330 record in 42 years as a head coach, including a 998-271 mark in 37 seasons at Duke. No coach in Division I men’s basketball history has won more games than Coach K’s 1,071.

He has tutored 57 NBA Draft picks while at Duke, including a total of 35 first-round selections that leads all active coaches. Duke has had at least one player taken in 30 of the 37 NBA Drafts during the Krzyzewski Era.

Under Coach K’s watch, Duke has produced multiple All-ACC Academic selections in 10 consecutive years. The 2015 NCAA championship featured a program-high five All-ACC Academic honorees. Three-time captain Amile Jefferson became the only player in Duke history to earn All-ACC Academic honors four times and departed the university in 2017 with both bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
