— Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski will receive the Nell and John Wooden Leadership in Coaching Award, an annual honor given in memory of legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden.

Krzyzewski, the all-time NCAA leader in wins (957), will be presented with the award Sept. 24 at "An Evening with the Legends of the Game" event in Washington, D.C.

The 66-year-old Krzyzewski is in his 34th season at Duke and is 16 wins shy of becoming the second coach in NCAA history to record 900 wins at one school. He has posted 13 30-win seasons, led the Blue Devils to 11 Final Four appearances and won four national championships (1991, 1992, 1001, 2010).

Krzyzewski has also led Team USA to four international gold medals including two Olympic golds in three stints as the head coach.

β€œCoach K represents exactly what the Nell and John Wooden Leadership in Coaching Award is all about,” said executive director Bob Geoghan, β€œwhether coaching the Blue Devils or Team USA, he is a passionate and inspires his teams to win.”

Krzyzewski becomes the second winner of the award, following Kentucky head coach John Calipari just a season ago.

Former Duke standouts Tommy Amaker and Grant Hill, as well as, Phil Chenier and Paul "Red" Jenkins will be inducted into the Washington Metropolitan Basketball Hall of Fame as part of the ceremonies.

    I concur. Never a unc fan but I won't let that stand in the way of acknowledging the greatness of Dean Smith and all he meant to the ACC. Coach K is the third in line to carry this mantle...Case, Smith, K. Is there another to fill those shoes? We will see.....

    Dean is on the Mt. Rushmore of college coaches. Your petty jabs are like pebbles thrown against a mountain.

    Congrats to Coach K. I hate to admit it but he is a great coach. To bad some of the Duke fans don't have the class that he has.

    Solid. Totally agree. It's not even close in coaching right now. Coach K is probably the best in any Sport from the Professional to the college levels at the present. He will set the wins record way out there before he retires.
