The men's basketball coach at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. Coach K played ball at West Point and was a protege of Bobby Knight at Indiana. He coached for five years at West Point before coming to Duke in 1980. After building his program though excellent recruiting, Coach K led the Blue Devils to two consecutive national championships, in 1991 and 1992, and is by far one of the most successful and well-loved coaches in men's college basketball in the last 20 years.
Coach K is a great guy, all around. He buys pizza for the tenters in K-ville during the 48 hours before the Carolina game. He's famous for his pre-game speeches to students, in which he inevitably discusses his Polish heritage. Known to curse like a sailor. His name is pronounced /sha-shef-ski/.
