Steve Wojciechowski spent 15 years as a Duke assistant and has coached some of nation's top players.

Duke associate head coach Steve Wojciechowski has been named the next coach at Marquette.

Wojciechowski, 37, is a former star point guard at Duke and has been long considered in Duke circles as the likely replacement for Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski. But with Krzyzewski saying publicly that he'll stay for five more years, Wojciechowski decided now is the time to leave for a head coaching position.

He'll replace Buzz Williams, who led Marquette to five consecutive NCAA tournament appearances before falling short this season. Williams went 139-69 in six seasons.

Wojciechowski established himself as one of the country's top young assistant coaches in his 15 years at Duke. He also worked extensively with USA basketball during that time.

He leaves for a job with one of the most lavish budgets in all of college basketball. Marquette spent more than $10.7 million on basketball last season, according to data from the U.S. Department of Education. With its budget, history and facilities, Marquette is considered one of the best jobs in the Big East.
