Many in college basketball believed that Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski was the heir apparent to Mike Krzyzewski in Durham. It appears that such a possibility, at best, is on hold. Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, the Blue Devils associate head coach decided to leave the program and take the head coaching job at Marquette. The Golden Eagles lost former head man Buzz Williams to Virginia Tech just last month.

Wojciechowski, affectionately known as “Wojo”, played for Coach K at Duke from 1994-1998 and returned to the school in 1999 as a member of the coaching staff. In 2008, he was promoted to associate head coach. He takes over a Marquette program that, prior to this past season, had made the NCAA Tournament eight years in a row.
