Reports: Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski to retire after 2021-22 season

’s Mike Krzyzewski, who has won more games than any coach in men’s college basketball history, reportedly will retire after the 2021-22 season.

Stadium on Wednesday reported both Krzyzewski’s intentions to depart and that associate coach and former Blue Devils guard Jon Scheyer will be a leading candidate for the position. ESPN reported that Scheyer will be named “coach-in-waiting.”

Krzyzewski, 74, has recorded 1,170 victories and five national championships during a coaching career that began at Army in 1975. He posted a 73-59 record during his five years with Army before joining Duke for the 1980-81 season.

Krzyzewski guided the Blue Devils to 12 Final Four appearances, including NCAA championships in 1990-91, 1991-92, 2000-01, 2009-10 and 2014-15.

A three-time Naismith College Coach of the Year and five-time Coach of the Year, Krzyzewski was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2001. He also coached the United States men’s national team to three Olympic gold medals (2008, 2012, 2016).

The Blue Devils missed the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1995 following a 13-11 season in 2020-21.

The retirement news comes on the heels of rival Roy Williams stepping down at North Carolina on April 1. Tar Heels alum Hubert Davis replaced Williams.
