Krzyzewski: Still Not Interested In Leaving Duke

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- While Mike Krzyzewski is flattered by all the reports linking him to the NBA, he insists he's not leaving Duke.

Krzyzewski admitted Wednesday that "it's more of a compliment -- it's not an insult" to hear his name mentioned for several NBA coaching vacancies. But he also reaffirmed what he's been saying for years, every time those rumors pop up: He isn't going anywhere.

He joked that "my position hasn't changed. I hope Duke's position hasn't changed."

Recent reports have mentioned the New Jersey Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers as possibly being interested in luring the 63-year-old Hall of Famer away from Duke. Krzyzewski has 11 Final Fours and four national titles in three decades at Duke.

He spoke between drills at the "K Academy," his annual fantasy camp.

    If Coach K did not leave Duke for the LA Lakers why would he leave to coach in NYC or anywhere else for that matter. GO DUKE!!

    I remember his first season at Duke people were saying fire him for having a lackluster year. Goes to show you need to give coaches a few seasons to build a winning program. Who would want to leave Cameron anyway?
