For many who watched college basketball in the 90s, Duke’s Steve Wojciechowski was absolutely annoying. His slapping of the floor was his trademark and played a role in the way people felt towards him. He wasn’t the most skilled guy, (but you don’t have to be at Duke) but his heart was unmatched and is why he has been on Coach K’s staff for years.
Actually, he was rumored to replace Coach K whenever he leaves, but he apparently doesn’t want to wait around. Wojo has reportedly accepted Marquette’s offer and will become their next head coach.
(Having said all of that, it wouldn’t be surprising if Wojo were to leave Marquette for the Duke job, if offered, when Coach K leaves. That’s how this works.)
Marquette has hired Duke associate head coach Steve Wojciechowski, sources told ESPN.
