Mike Krzyzewski’s future at Duke is a storyline every offseason, and a first round exit to 14-seed Mercer only feeds speculation that his illustrious coaching career may be winding down. In a press conference today, Coach K refuted any notion that he may almost be done.
K reiterates that he’s gonna be at Duke for at least the next 5 years.

Five more years would have Coach K coaching through the age of 72, but its hard to argue. Even with a few recent NCAA upset losses, Duke has won at least 26 games and finished in the top three in the ACC standings in each of the last seven seasons, a span which includes a National Championship, two Sweet 16s, and an Elite Eight.
