Former Duke All-American Chris Carrawell begins his first season on the staff in 2018-19, as Mike Krzyzewski named him an assistant coach in March 2018.
Carrawell returns to Durham after a four-year stint as an assistant coach at Marquette University under his Duke teammate Steve Wojciechowski. The 2000 ACC Player of the Year and a first team All-America selection, Carrawell played for the Blue Devils from 1996 to 2000. He was a senior captain.
As a player at Duke, Carrawell was a two-time All-ACC selection. He is tied for 32nd on the all-time scoring list at Duke with 1,455 career points and also ranks 15th in school history with 0.8 blocks per game and tied for eighth with 116 overall wins. Duke dominated the ACC during Carrawell’s career, as his 66 conference victories are the second-most by a Blue Devil.
With Carrawell on the squad, Duke won a pair of ACC Tournament titles and reached the 1999 Final Four by tying a school record for wins (37-2).
The native of St. Louis, Mo., Carrawell arrived at Marquette after serving three years as an assistant coach with the Springfield Armor, an affiliate of the Brooklyn Nets, of the NBA Development League. He worked under Bob MacKinnon the first two seasons before Doug Overton took over the squad in 2013-14.
Prior to working with the Armor, Carrawell served in a variety of roles at his alma mater. He was the Assistant Video Coordinator/Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach in 2010-11 and Graduate Assistant/Head Team Manager from 2008-10, after being hired in 2007-08 as the Duke Athletics Outreach Coordinator. He also briefly worked with the Duke women's basketball team before his departure to pro coaching.
A second round draft pick by the NBA's San Antonio Spurs, Carrawell played overseas after graduating from Duke. He last played in Holland in 2007 where his team finished second after losing in the championship finals.
Carrawell is married to his wife Keisha and is the father of two boys, Caleb and Christian.
