K will get a say in his replacement, much like Dean Smith did. I would be stunned if they went outside the Duke family with a guy like Shaka Smart or Billy Donovan.

Smith got to choose his successor, K has already said he doesn't want that but he will have input. UNC screwed themselves over by hiring from within the family, you think Duke is going to emulate a failure by their hated rival? K was outside the family himself, I think they'll conduct a coaching search.

Quin Snyder, for the win.




So Coach K is 65? Or is it his hair that is 65...or is 65 the number of years it has been since his hair moved...

K was hired when Duke was awful and nobody knew who they were. It's a different program now - by a lot. They'll do interviews, but it'll be a Duke guy. Whether Collins, Wojo, Dawkins, etc. Duke's a tight community, particularly their basketball program. They'll look for a guy who knows the culture, knows the ins and outs of the program.

All you're doing is perpetuating common myths about Duke. They were in the elite 8 the year K was hired and played for the national championship 2 years before he was hired. They won the ACC 10 times before K arrived.

When has that worked for anybody? Duke is smarter than that, the only ones who seem to really believe Wojo or Collins will be the next coach are ACC fans who are hoping that is the case.

Roy Williams was a UNC assistant for 10 years. He's worked out okay for the Tar Heels.

Duke doesn't have a Roy Williams. They have plenty of Guthridge's and Doherty's though. Thanks for making my point.

Speculation...you have no idea how good Collins or Wojo could be. Good try though.
