Coach K To Retire After Next Season

Videos by OutKick

Coach K is calling it quits after this upcoming season, according to a report from basketball analyst Jeff Goodman. This news comes just hours after Celtics president Danny Ainge stepped down, so is there something brewing between Coach K and the NBA?

We can’t call this “quitting” at Duke since he still has a season to coach, but it also could mean Coach K is finally eyeing an NBA head coaching gig. And Boston is a solid place to be, as crazy as this sounds.

They have great young talent with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, and more importantly, a ton of draft capital. This may appeal to the 74-year-old Duke head coach because they can get aggressive on the trade market to build a winner — fast.

The basketball world is shocked to see Coach K go, and tweets are flying in for the five-time national champion.
