Exclusive Interview With Coach K: Day 1

Every year, The Chronicle’s sports editor sits down with Mike Krzyzewski for an about an hour in the summer. This year, Ben Cohen met with Coach K June 17 to talk about everything from the Olympics and Duke to his succession and post-retirement plans. This is the first of five clips that The Chronicle will post this week (the rest will come at midnight every day).

In the first excerpt, Coach K explains why Duke struggled in the ACC and NCAA Tournaments last March, and how hard it was for him to see DeMarcus Nelson not match his season’s output in the postseason. Feel free to leave your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below.

COMING TUESDAY: Krzyzewski analyzes Steve Wojciechowski’s role as big-man coach.
