Coach K With An Assist!

A lot of what you read, especially online, might tend to suggest that Coach K is this horrible person, but that's through the prism of the media and also because Coach K hasn't really used the media much in recent years and allowed himself to be defined, which is, in our opinion, a huge mistake. People rarely see the softer side of Krzyzewski, that he at times calls total strangers who have had tragedy in their lives, and does what he can to buck them up. Take the Scotts of Beloit, Ohio. If you tried to pawn off some of the stuff that's written about Coach K, they might pop you in the nose, because the man's been a godsend for them.
