The DBR Podcast is back again for more coverage and discussion of the enormous news that Mike Krzyzewski is ending his career of over four decades as the Duke Men’s Basketball head coach, and that Jon Scheyer is taking his place in that job. Donald is unfortunately still not completely with us, but we soldier on with some limited audio from him.
We begin with a discussion of how Duke got to this day and all of the challenges and considerations that went into the joint decision to announce Coach K’s retirement on the same day that the program announced Scheyer’s promotion. Jason notes how the timing of the announcement dovetails perfectly with Nina King’s elevation as Duke’s newest athletic director.
After the break, we get to talk extensively for the first time about now head coach in waiting, Jon Scheyer. We feel good that he will bring his recruiting prowess to the top job, but what else are we looking for as he assumes arguably the highest-profile job in college basketball?
We’ll be back again really soon to keep talking about Coach K, his legacy, and the new world of Duke Men’s Basketball under Coach Jon Scheyer. Stay in touch with us at dbrpodcast at gmail.com and you’ll hear from us again very soon.
