Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski plans to coach at the school for at least five more seasons.

Krzyzewski has been at Duke for the past 34 years and holds the Division I men's basketball record with 983 wins. His teams have been to 11 Final Fours and won four national championships.

This season, the Blue Devils were eliminated in the NCAA tournament's Round of 64 with a 78-71 loss to 14th-seeded Mercer.

"I'm looking forward to the next five years," Krzyzewski said, via the Charlotte Observer. "What do we do in the next five, not just what do we do next season. What are the decisions? The first thing is I look at me. I'm going to be here.

"This past year I had a few setbacks and I had an episode with health at the Wake game. I wanted to clear the air that I'm good. I'm going forward."

Krzyzewski, 67, was hospitalized after a loss at Wake Forest on March 4 after feeling light-headed during the game.

Kryzewski will continue to coach USA Basketball in the FIBA World Cup this summer and the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

WINN: The Sweet Sixteen teams most likely to win the national championship
