Coach K Disrespected the Game and Didn’t Coach the Second Half Due to Not Feeling Well

SJ - February 16, 2022

Coach K spent the first half of Duke's 76-74 win over Wake Forest receiving assistance from the team's medical staff.  That led to him not being able to coach the second half.  Duke announced that he wasn't feeling well and wouldn't be coaching the second half.

Jon Scheyer, was personally selected by Coach K to takeover when he retires, was the acting head coach.  I'm a little disappointed that Coach K decided not to coach the second half.  It was disrespectful to the game of basketball.

What if a kid on the opposing team needed to be taught a lesson?  Coach K can't do that from the locker room.  I hope Coach K will remember that the next time he has diarrhea or whatever was causing him to not feel well.
