DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski says he isn’t even thinking about the end of his Hall of Fame coaching career.
Krzyzewski spoke publicly Wednesday for the first time since a pair of offseason surgeries and said, “I don’t have plans for the future” and that “I don’t have a retirement thing.”
The 69-year-old coach has dealt with some health issues during the past few months. He had knee replacement surgery on his left knee in April and had inguinal hernia surgery last month.
He also missed Duke’s game at Georgia Tech last January because of a sudden illness that briefly had him hospitalized in the cardiac ward of the university’s hospital.
Krzyzewski says he’s “doing great” and actually feels younger after “getting these things done.”
