DURHAM, N.C. (WGHP) — Mike Krzyzewski, the coach of Duke University’s men’s basketball team, has reportedly decided to retire after this coming season, sources tell Stadium.

Krzyzewski has not yet issued an official announcement.

Jeff Goodman of Stadium reports that Assistant Coach Jon Scheyer is the top choice to succeed Coach K.

The news comes just months after Roy Williams, head coach of longtime-Duke-rival University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, announced his retirement.
