Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski to retire after the 2021-22 season.

Stadium’s Jeff Goodman reported Wednesday that legendary Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski will retire following the 2021-22 season.

Krzyzewski, 74, just completed his 40th season with the Blue Devils, going 13-11 and missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1995.

Throughout his illustrious career, Krzyzewski has captured five NCAA Tournament championships, coached 23 All-Americans, reached the NCAA Tournament 35 times, and is the D-I men’s basketball leader in career wins at 1,170.

All signs point to current Duke assistant Jon Scheyer succeeding Krzyzewski, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Scheyer is expected to soon be named the coach-in-waiting. He has been on the Duke staff since 2014 and was elevated to associate head coach in 2018.

Krzyzewski’s forthcoming retirement decision is the third major retirement story of the college basketball offseason. North Carolina’s Roy Williams retired on April 1 and Oklahoma’s Lon Kruger announced his retirement on March 25.

This story will be updated with more information.
