Duke commemorated Coach K's 1,000th win with a video tribute

Tuesday January 27th, 2015

Mike Krzyzewski has been at Duke since 1980, so it would be tough to fit every memorable moment into a five-minute video.

To celebrate Krzyzewski's 1,000th win, Duke made a highlight video spanning all of Coach K's three-plus decades in Durham.

Coach K: 1,000 wins and counting​

It features contemporary players like Jabari Parker and Kyrie Irving, and earlier Blue Devils like Shane Battier and Elton Brand.

Curiously, it omits Duke's numerous early NCAA tournament exits at the hands of teams like VCU and Mercer.
