Coach K on his Cubs advancing, Spurrier retiring, his own coaching future
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski joined the show to talk about his beloved Cubs. Coach K talked about going in for games as a kid and how much this team means to him. He had tremendous praise for this current Cubs squad. “They’ve done a masterful job,” saidKrzyzewski, noting how young this team is. “It reminds me of my freshman last year winning a championship.” He said that young people today, at least the ones he’s coaching, are more resilient than people think.
Coach K had interesting comments on Steve Spurrier. He’s a huge fan of the Head Ball Coach since they were together at Duke. Krzyzewski had no problem with how Spurrier stepped down. He also discussed his eventual retirement. “I would hope that whenever I step down it would be planned,” Coach K said. He said that he did not consider stepping down after they won the title.
