After coaching for over 36 years at the college level, things have finally come full circle for the legendary Coach K. Mike Kryzewski, men’s basketball head coach at Duke since 1980, captured the Division I men’s wins record with his 903rd career victory last night in Madison Square garden. With his career-long mentor Bob Knight in attendance, Coach K became Division I’s most winningest coach after his Duke Blue Devils took down Michigan State 74-69.
The record-setting victory was the 903rd of Kryzewski’s eventful career, one that is certainly far from over. By far one of the greatest college basketball head coaches of all time, many expect the Blue Devils’ legendary leader to put the Division I men’s win record out of reach.
