What does it mean when a basketball coach records 1,000 career wins?
It means that the coach is either really old and/or has been at it for a long time. But it also means he’s really good at what he does and has great ball players.
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski recorded his 1,000th career win on Sunday when his Blue Devils defeated St. John’s 77-68 at Madison Square Garden. Krzyzewski became the first NCAA Division I men’s coach to reach the milestone.
Krzyzewski, 67, has been coaching Duke since 1980.
