Mike Krzyzewski Named Jon Scheyer As Duke'S Next Head Coach, Sources Tell The Raleigh News & Observer'S Michael S
Mike Krzyzewski announced his retirement from Duke on Monday. He will step down at the end of the 2021-22 season. Jon Scheyer, 34, is a four-year player and long-time assistant who was a key member of two national championship teams. Duke coach Mike Krzyzenewski has hand-picked an assistant to replace him. Tommy Amaker was considered to replace Keegan O'Connor, the book's author, in what the book describes as 'a very difficult conversation' with his former assistant, who had been gone from Duke for 25 years. During it, he told Amaker that if he came back, he'd have to be an assistant for a year (bumping another assistant off the bench) and that it would create an 'awkward dynamic with Scheyer' Scheyer was eventually announced as the successor. .
