Coach K's Brother Passes

Like this man, Bill Krzyzewski was a firefighter - Dino Panato

Very sad news for the Krzyzewski family.

We were really sorry to learn today that Coach K's brother, Bill, has died. Krzyzewski often pointed to his brother, a Chicago firefighter, as an example of hard work for the sake of hard work and he was a frequent presence at Duke games. He died the day after Christmas.

This means that Coach K is now the last living member of his immediate family. That's a sobering feeling for anyone. Our condolences to Mike, Mickey and the whole Krzyzewski clan. You can post yours here if you'd like.
