After Coach K announced the upcoming season would be his last, we sat down with the Hall of Famer to discuss the decision to make this his final year, his legacy at Duke, the challenges facing college basketball and why Jon Scheyer is ready to take over next spring. We also get Scheyer's take on the opportunities and expectations that come with being the next head coach at Duke, how the worst day of his playing career led to this moment, and the importance of the upcoming season.
Perspective on the historic nature of the past week is provided through conversations with players past and present including Nolan Smith, Lance Thomas, Brian Zoubek, Gerald Henderson, Wendell Moore, Jr. and Michael Savarino.
Then we close with insight into Coach K’s impact at Duke from Deputy Athletics Director Jon Jackson and John Roth, who was at Coach’s introductory press conference on March 18, 1980 and has spent the last four decades covering his legendary career.
