As we mentioned, we were traveling over Easter Weekend and were in a remote area with very limited access. So forgive us for not seeing the news that Jeff Capel has been promoted to associate head coach and Jon Scheyer has moved from a special assistant to an assistant coach.

Coach K's staff now consists of Capel, Scheyer and Nate James.

K said this about Scheyer: "We are ecstatic about Jon joining the staff. He was one of the great players to play at Duke; a national champion and a captain not that far removed so he adds a youthful exuberance to our staff. His knowledge of the game is incredible. I think he will be a terrific teacher and an outstanding recruiter."
