Kenny King enters his 13th year working with the Duke basketball program on a full-time basis. King returned to his alma mater during the summer of 2002 as the basketball program’s academic and recruiting coordinator. While his primary focus remains the team’s academic endeavors, his role in 2007-08 was broadened to include all aspects of student life. In addition he serves as the academic coordinator for women’s golf.
King’s main responsibilities include class scheduling, tutoring, time management and long-term academic and career planning, and serving as the liaison for campus affairs. As the scope of the program has become more global, King continues to strengthen communication between the undergraduate faculty while expanding his reach to include the graduate, professional and international communities. In addition to his academic and campus duties, King is also involved in Duke’s day-to-day basketball operations. He assists the Blue Devil coaching staff with various recruiting responsibilities and the coordination of the Coaches’ Clinic. King also assists with the direction of Mike Krzyzewski’s basketball camp and the K Academy.
King served four years as a student manager at Duke from 1996-2000. Following his graduation in 2000, King worked at Morgan Stanley for two years as an Analyst in the Fixed Income Division both in their New York and London offices.
King, a native of Harrison, N.Y., graduated cum laude from Duke with a Bachelor of Science degree in economics and minor in chemistry. He also earned his MBA from Duke’s Fuqua School of Business in the spring of 2008. A graduate of Iona Preparatory School, King and his wife, the former Robin Hutchison, have three sons, John Kenny III “Jack”, William and Alexander, and one daughter, Katherine.
