The news hit the college basketball world like a thunderbolt: Coach K is stepping down and heading off into retirement.

But he isn’t ready to hang it up just yet. He’s going to have one last season, one final hurrah, at the helm of the program he built.

And it appears Coach K has picked assistant coach John Scheyer as his successor.

DBR Podcast hosts Jason Evans and Sam Klein quickly hop on the line for their fast reaction to the news. Their biggest immediate takeaway is that this is a story that we will be talking about for many, many months and that it will have a ripple effect across all of college basketball and across the entire Duke world.
