Mike Krzyzewski will retire whenever Duke Blue Devils’ season ends in the NCAA Tournament and will be succeeded by his former player and associate coach, Jon Scheyer.

Duke Blue Devils is set to take on Arkansas Razorbacks #4 in the Elite Eight, with a Final Four spot on the line. Whether the season ends in defeat or the Blues win the national title, legendary head coach Mike Krzyzewski will retire.

Replacing a head coach who has done an excellent job like Krzyzewski is always a difficult task, but the Blues have already found a successor before the start of the 2021-22 campaign.

Will Jon Scheyer succeed Coach K as Duke basketball coach?

Duke has decided who will succeed Coach K next season. That person is none other than assistant head coach Jon Scheyer. The school officially announced the decision and held an official press conference for Scheyer this past June. He will officially take over this April.

Scheyer, a former keeper, played for the Blues from 2006 to 2010, where he scored a total of 2,077 points, 522 rebounds, 440 assists and 208 steals. The guard scored a scoring percentage of 0.406 and a three-point percentage of 0.381. Scheyer was also part of the 2010 NCAA championship team.

Following his competitive career, Scheyer returned to Duke as an assistant in 2014. He was then promoted to head coach in 2018. After Duke’s NCAA Tournament was over, Scheyer would replaced Krzyzewski as head coach.
