Early it was announced by Duke Athletics that Coach K will not coach against the Yellow Jackets tonight. In fact he is still at home in Durham. Here is the official statement from the Duke Athletic Department:
Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski will not be coach the team tonight at Georgia Tech. After the team meal last evening, he was feeling under the weather and stayed back in Durham where he was evaluated at Duke University Hospital and directed by his doctors to remain home. Associate head coach Jeff Capel will coach the team in tonight’s game at Georgia Tech. Coach Krzyzweski is expected to return to the team soon.
This will be the first game Coach K has missed since he was out during the 1994-1995 season. This will also be the first game Coach Capel will be a head coach since he was at Oklahoma. Capel has a career record of 175-110 in 9 seasons.
