Coach Mike Krzyzewski will be taking a leave of absence from the Duke Blue Devils basketball team due to health issues. The 69 year old coach will be dealing with back issues and, reportedly, will coach the Duke team in Wednesday’s game before undergoing back surgery.
It is expected that assistant coach, Jeff Capel, will take over head coaching duties until Coach K is able to return.
