Well one more move in the coaching change is set: Duke’s Nate James and Jon Scheyer have both been promoted to associate head coaches.

Coach K had this to say: “Nate and Jon are former captains who clearly understand Duke and our culture. They’re both national champions who’ve played an integral role in our success over the past two decades. As good as they were as players, and they were both excellent, they have been remarkable, distinguished and instinctive coaches who have earned this opportunity. With Nate and Jon assuming additional responsibilities in their associate head coach roles, I am excited about the makeup of our staff moving forward.”

That still leaves one more job open. We’ll see soon who Duke hires or promotes.
