As Coach K gears up for a third straight run at Olympic glory, we get a glimpse for the first time at why he changed his mind about returning, courtesy of Jerry Colangelo, who says that not long after the London games, that â[Krzyzewski] was having withdrawal already. He started talking about the future. No commitments, but it was there.
âI didnât have to plan it, but it was there. My attitude was, I know what he said. I know what heâs also said to me privately. Iâm going to give him all the time he needs and when the timing is right, weâll have that sit-down again. Usually when I sit down with him, thereâs a good result. And it happened again and it was a positive result and Iâm thankful for that.â
