We know Coach K isn’t going anywhere in the next year or two, but he has said he’d be at Duke at least another five years. That means the greatest coach of all time would be 72 years old. John Wooden retired at age 64, Bobby Knight 68. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that Coach K retires after those five years are up.
Since 2011, Coach K has brought in several #1 players and highly ranked recruiting classes. Many analysts and experts thought Duke had a real chance in a few of those years to win it all, yet for those years Coach K doesn’t have a National Championship. Duke has arguably one of the greatest recruiting classes ever coming in this season (on paper at least).
That begs the question, will Coach K and Duke win another National Championship before he retires? Make sure to vote in our poll below and share your thoughts in the comments section or with us on Twitter!
