On Saturday Duke rallied to beat St Johns to give Coach K win number 1000 to put him on top of college basketballs Mount Rushmore the cherry on top of a record breaking career!!
A 38 year career that started at his alma mater Army where he played point guard for legendary coach Bob Knight, who became coach K mentor and he took every bit of that advice! He spent 5 years there making a name for himself in the basketball world!
That was just the beginning for Coach K as he has made the Duke Blue devils a perennial powerhouse and as a North Carolina fan he and his teams have broken mine and many hearts!! He has coached with his whole heart on the court every season, putting a winning team together every year, while dealing with the dreaded one and done rule! Here are some eye popping numbers to show why he is in a class of his own 4 national titles, 11 Final Fours, 13 ACC championships and the most impressive number to me is he has a 76% win percentage that’s nuts, that took a hit tonight Go Irish!!
He also has led USA basketball for 9 years leading us 5 golds, 2 silvers, and 2 bronze impressive any way you slice it shows he can coach anyone at anytime as long as he coaches we have an extra advantage!!
Coach K is an amazing coach there are not enough adjectives to describe him, he is an even better person cares about his players and coaches both personally and professionally the ultimate class act!! Congrats on 1000 and counting!!!!
