Mike 'Coach K' Krzyzewski Coaches the Last Duke Home Game of His Career After losing to the North Carolina Tar Heels, Duke Head Coach Mike "Coach K" Krzyzewski reflected on the loss in a post-game press conference. "First of all, congratulations to North Carolina, " Krzyzewski said, per NPR. "It was a game that the winner was going to be joyous and the loser was going to be in agony. And that's the type of game we expected. We would have liked to have been on the other side of it, but I'm proud of what our guys have done."
