Coach K tells Paolo Banchero to ‘shut up’ in TBS interview


Mike Krzyzewski apparently didn’t appreciate his star player’s compliment.

After reaching his record 13th Final Four as head coach, the legendary Duke coach told Paolo Banchero to shut up after calling Coach K “the GOAT” during a TBS interview.

“It’s the GOAT here,” Banchero told the camera after his team beat Arkansas 78-69.

“No. No. No. Shut up,” Krzyzewski replied.

Krzyzewski may be humble about his GOAT status, but his stats put him on that podium. Coach K has the most wins among head coaches – 1,202 – and is the first male Division 1 coach to win 1,000. The Hall of Fame head coach has coached an abundance of NBA talent, most recently players like Zion Williamson and the Knicks’ RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish. He also won five NCAA Tournament titles – second only to UCLA’s John Wooden with 10.

The Duke head coach announced his retirement before the start of the 2021-22 season and led the ranked Blue Devils to a 32-6 record this season.

In Krzyzewski’s last big dance, Duke knocked out Michigan State, Texas Tech and Arkansas to enter the Final Four. The Blue Devils will face the winner of Sunday’s game between North Carolina and Saint Peter next Saturday.
