Mike Krzyzewski, also known as Coach K, lives in this $1.15M mansion near Duke University. He is an American basketball coach and former player, serving as the coach for the Duke Blue Devils since 1980. His teams have won five NCAA Championships, 12 Final Fours, 12 ACC regular season titles, and 13 ACC Tournament championships, making him one of the most successful coaches in NCAA Division 1 basketball history, and Duke one of its most storied programs.
He is currently the coach with the most wins in NCAA Division I men's basketball history having set the record in 2011.
Coach K's tenure at Duke has not been without defining moments. In 1991, his team defeated UNLV, then considered perhaps the greatest college basketball team ever assembled. In 1992, Duke's one-point defeat of Kentucky will forever be remembered by Grant Hill's 70-foot inbound pass to Christian Laettner who faked, dribbled, and swished 17-foot shot at the buzzer. 1984's win in a matchup vs. ACC-rival Clemson University arguably turned the tide for Krzyzewski's entire tenure as a college coach, having been on the hot seat before the game (having poor seasons in his first three at Duke), and, after that season, missing the NCAA Tournament only once until present day. In 2010, Coach K's Blue Devils defeated cinderella-team Butler in the National Title game tying him for second all-time (behind John Wooden) in championships won with four.
In addition to Duke, Coach Krzyzewski has been the head coach of several USA men's national teams, including 1992's Barcelona Olympics' "Dream Team" and 2008's Beijing Olympics' "Redeem Team." In his international career he has coached such star players as LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, Charles Barkley, Chris Mullin, Jason Kidd, Dwight Howard, Patrick Ewing, David Robinson, Magic Johnson, and Karl Malone.
Krzyzewski has been given the opportunity to coach in the NBA at least five times, but has rebuffed the offers every time. Mike Krzyzewski's net worth is $25 million.
