Coach K came to Duke in 1980, when he was 33 years old. He’s spent the majority of his life now as Duke’s head coach, setting records all over the place.

He’s 71 now, and now says retirement is not on the horizon and that “there’s no end in sight.”

He points to his health, which he says is as good as it’s been in a long time, and says that his desire to do the job is sky high.

So good news for Duke fans and bad news for the rest of the ACC and beyond.

He also says he’s expecting big things from big man Marques Bolden this coming season.
