Last season, the Blue Devils missed the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1995. Coach K had also missed most of the year due to a ruptured disk in his lower back.
The 74-year-old Krzyzewski has won five national championships, made 12 Final Four appearances, and is the NCAA Division I all-time wins leader during his time at Duke.
Coach K is also been inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame, so this truly will mark the end of a legendary career.
