Emotions pour out of Mike Krzyzewski in Duke’s final home game


DURHAM, NC — Mike Krzyzewski has done his best to contain his emotions throughout the season.

On a historic day that saw Duke stunned by rivals North Carolina in Coach K’s final home game, the 75-year-old coach icon did what he became known over the years: he took responsibility on behalf of his team.

“I’m sorry for this afternoon,” he told an impassioned fan base at the Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday – addressing the Cameron Crazies in particular. “Today was unacceptable. But the season has been very acceptable. The season is not over.”

Then, after keeping all the emotions in check throughout the season, the feelings started pouring out as Coach K shed some light tears.
