Multiple media outlets have reported that associate men’s basketball head coach Johnny Dawkins has accepted the head coaching position at Stanford.
Dawkins graduated in 1986 as Duke’s career leading scorer and held the record until 2006, when he was surpassed by J.J. Redick. He became an assistant coach in 1998 and Mike Krzyzewski’s associate head coach in 1999. His No. 24 was retired, and he is a member of the Duke Sports Hall of Fame. Dawkins is also in charge of player development for Krzyzewski’s U.S. Olympic team.
What do you think of Dawkins’ decision, and how will it affect Duke?
