DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski will received the Nell and John Wooden Leadership in Coaching Award at "An Evening with the Legends of the Game" event in Washington, D.C. Sept. 24. The custom designed award will be presented by Nan Wooden, daughter of legendary UCLA coach John Wooden.

Krzyzewski, one of the most highly decorated coaches of all-time, enters the 2013-14 season with NCAA records in wins (957), 30-win seasons (13) and seasons ranked No. 1 in the AP Poll (16). He is in his 34th season at Duke and is 16 wins shy of becoming the second coach in NCAA history to record 900 wins at one school. Krzyzewski has also guided the Blue Devils to four National Championships (1991, 1992, 2001, 2010) and 11 Final Four appearances.

In addition to his staggering success in Durham, Krzyzewski has also helped reestablish USA Basketball atop the FIBA rankings. Now in his third stint as head coach of the U.S. Men's Senior National Team, he has guided the program to four gold medals, including a pair of Olympic golds.

“Coach K represents exactly what the Nell and John Wooden Leadership in Coaching Award is all about,” said executive director Bob Geoghan, “whether coaching the Blue Devils or Team USA, he is a passionate and inspires his teams to win.”
