Duke adds Scheyer to hoops staff

Posted April 29, 2013

— He helped lead the Duke Blue Devils to two ACC championships and a national championship and on Monday, Jon Scheyer was announced as a special assistant under Mike Krzyzewski.

“Jon Scheyer is one of the amazing champions we’ve had in this program and he’s certainly one of the greatest young men to ever wear the Duke uniform,” Krzyzewski said in a statement. “He’s universally loved by Duke fans. It is incredibly exciting to be part of his journey to become a coach. Jon will add all the things he brought to Duke as a player, this time as a member of our staff.”

Scheyer will join the staff for the 2013-14 season occupying the role previously held by Nate James. He will be tasked with game strategies, film breakdown and practice planning. James was promoted following the departure of Chris Collins who left for Northwestern in March.

“I am extremely fortunate to be able to come back to Duke,” said Scheyer. “It is a tremendous honor to be on Coach K’s staff and it is something I will cherish. I want to continue to learn from the entire staff and bring whatever I can to help the program.”

Following his graduation from Duke in 2010, Scheyer played professionally with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the NBA Developmental League and overseas with the Maccabi Tel-Aviv and Gran Canaria organizations.

He ended his Duke career with 2,077 points to rank 10th on Duke’s all-time scoring list and played in 144 consecutive games, tied for the second-longest streak in school history.

As a senior during the 2009-10 season, Scheyer took over the starting point guard duties for the Blue Devils and averaged 18.2 points, 4.9 assists and 1.6 steals per game to guide the Blue Devils to the program’s fourth national championship. He was named second team All-America, first team All-ACC and first team ACC All-Tournament that year.

    Outstanding news for Duke. I think Jon brings mental and physical toughness with him, along with a desire to win. He will fit in well with the others there. Wish him nothing but success. Gratz Jon. GO DUKE!!!!!!!!!

    Obviously. Scheyer has loads to offer to his University and team. He's one of the all-time favorites, and Coach K doesn't give a job to anyone. He earned this job. Like him or hate him, he won games for Duke. He will do a quality job up there. He knows the game, and will recruit top notch players. Capel is still looking. He's the best of all on Coach K's staff right now. Capel is way in front of Wojo. Not even close.

    I sure he'll be happy to get off that army cot, sleeping in no air conditioning, and getting paid 10 thousand a year.
