Coach K, Duke's men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, is coaching his last home game at Duke tomorrow.

According to CNBC, "Krzyzewski has been coaching at Duke since 1980 and is considered one of the greatest college basketball coaches of all time. Over the course of his career at the university, he won five national titles and is the first Division 1 men’s coach to lead his team to 1,000 wins. His 1,196 victories are the most in the history of men’s college basketball."

"Each man has his own music bubbling up inside him and – quite naturally – different ones will let it out in various ways. When I blow I think of times and things from outa the past that gives me an image of the tune. Like moving pictures passing in front of my eyes. A town, a chick somewhere back down the line, an old man with no name you seen once in a place you don't remember – any of 'em can trigger that image. Or a certain blue feeling or happy one. What you hear coming from a man's horn – that's what he is! And man can be many different things."

– Louis Armstrong
