Hey Florida, Coach K Will Be Speaking There This Fall

In case you want to go. And you’ll remember it for a long time if you do.

USA Basketball Announces 2008 US Olympic Team
CHICAGO - JUNE 23: (L-R) USA Basketball Men’s Senior National Team head coach Mike Krzyzewski addresses media in attendance for a press conference to officially name the 12-member 2008 Men’s Senior National Team as USA Basketball Men’s Senior National Team managing director Jerry Colangelo, Carmelo Anthony of the Denver Nuggets and Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat look on at the National Italian American Sports Hall Of Fame June 23, 2008 in Chicago, Illinois

As his retirement goes on, former Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski has made it clear that he’s not quite ready for a rocking chair.

Aside from his SiriusXM gig and his new NBA special advisor role, Coach K has a third career: as a speaker.

We don’t know how much he makes per outing but it’s probably reasonably lucrative and obviously he has more time to speak than he did when he was coaching. If you ever have a chance to listen to him speak, change your plans and do it. You’ll be very glad that you did.

If you live near Jacksonville, you’ll get a chance on November 8th as Krzyzewski will speak as part of the 2023-24 Florida Forum Speaker Series.

The Florida Forum Speaker Series is also a fundraiser for Jacksonville’s Wolfson Children’s Hospital, so that’s a nice bonus.

Also appearing in the series: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and former NATO commander James Stavridis. Both of those should be very interesting as well.
