Steve Wojciechowski talks Mike Krzyzewski & 1,000 wins


Former Duke Blue Devil and current Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski spoke about his former coach Mike Krzyzewski as he won his 1,000th career game.  “Coach has been an amazing mentor for me.  He is just a phenomenal role model really, in every sense of the word, not just from a basketball perspective, but also from a personal perspective.  I think all the guys who have been around him and all the staff that’s been around him would echo what I said.  He’s a very unique person and he’s had a profound impact on so many lives in basketball and outside of basketball.  For me, I always like to see good things happen for good people, and so this is an amazing thing happening to an amazing person.”

    Coach K has changed probably hundreds of lives on and off the court. Great human being. Also a big time winner.
