Coach K: The Rise and Reign of Mike Krzyzewski

Coach K: The Rise and Reign of Mike Krzyzewski

By:  Ian O'Connor

Also available in:
The definitive biography of college basketball’s all-time winningest coach, Mike Krzyzewski.

Coach K, as he’s affectionately known to his fans, is universally regarded as the nation’s most respected collegiate basketball coach. He recruits extraordinarily talented players who are also top-quality students and is acknowledged by all (including his opponents) for running a superb program that embraces winning at the highest collegiate level and doing so “the right way.” Since he was hired at Duke in 1980, he has maintained a stellar hall of fame record, including five NCAA championships and a win-loss record of 1,084–291. He also served as head coach of the US Olympic men's basketball team, helping them win three gold medals. This book answers all the unanswered questions, including what, at age seventy-three, still drives Coach K to compete; who were his key influences; what were his transformational moments; which were the low points in his illustrious career; and what he’s really like when he’s not on the court or in front of national media. Including Coach K's reflections on his numerous All-American players and on his relationships with top rival coaches, this is the definitive work on a basketball legend.
