Coach K is about to experience his final March Madness as the head coach of the Duke Blue Devils. Duke doesn't play the CSU Fullerton Tigers until Friday evening, but he helped kick off CBS's 2022 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament coverage by looking back at what March Madness has meant to him.
In just over 40 years Coach K has taken Duke to March Madness 35 times. He won a record 97 games the tournament and won five National Championships.
However you feel about Coach K and Duke, his retirement marks the end of an era. No one has had more experience or experienced more winning in March than Coach K. It seems unlikely anyone ever comes close.
