Coach K certainly displays his positive attitude with this statement.
Mike Krzyzewski was the Head Coach at Army for five years before getting the Duke job more than 30 years ago. Coach K has led Duke to four National Championships and 11 final fours. He also was at the helm when the USA won the gold medal in the 2008 Summer Olympics.
Mike Krzyzewski played for Bob Knight at Army and Coach K soon will surpass Knight for the most wins by a college basketball coach in Division 1 History. Since Bob Knight was Mike Krzyzewski's mentor, this will be a very special time in the lives of both men.
Mike Krzyzewski was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2001.
