Nina King was named Duke’s new A.D. on Wednesday and in addition to our latest podcast, where the guys discuss her promotion, we thought we’d do a nice link run. Also, here’s what Coach K had to say about his new boss:

“This hire is an important step for the continuity of the outstanding culture that exists within Duke Athletics. Serving as one of Kevin White’s most trusted advisors for his entire time at Duke, Nina King has served our University well in whatever roles have been assigned to her. She has represented the Duke Department of Athletics with distinction both internally and externally, including many roles on the national stage. That national presence is important in our school’s leadership position in an ever-changing college sports environment. Personally, I have enjoyed working with Nina and look forward to working with her even more in the future.”
