Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski on Thursday discussed the perceived reasons for his planned retirement following the conclusion of the 2021-22 season.

Then the 74-year-old addressed the exact reason why he is calling it a career.

“You might ask about why we’re doing this. This is not about health. … It’s not about COVID, or why (last) year was so bad,” Krzyzewski said Thursday at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C. “It’s certainly not about what’s going on in college basketball, or that the game is changing. All right, I’ve been in this for 46 years, you mean to tell me that the game has never changed?
