For the second straight year, the Duke men’s basketball team has lost an assistant coach.

Last year, Chris Collins, a long-time assistant, then accepted the Northwestern Head Coaching position. Today, Steve Wojciechowski, the Associate Head Coach since 2008, has accepted the Marquette Head Coaching position.

Wojciechowski will now be 90 miles apart from each other. In addition, it is rare that Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski losses assistant coaches in back-to-back years.

Wojo, as he is known, replaces Buzz Williams who took over the Virginia Tech head coaching position last month. This will be Wojo’s first Head Coaching position.

He has been an assistant coach with Duke since 1999 when Mike Krzyzewski offered him an assistant coaching position. He was then promoted to Associate Head Coach in 2008.

Wojo did not want to wait the next 5 years in order to take over his alma mater. Coach Krzyzewski said that he would like to coach for the next 5-years.

Wojo, who is known for his coaching style and intensity, was a member of the Duke men’s basketball  coaching staff when the team won National Championships in 2001 and 2010.

He has also won a gold medal, as an assistant coach. He was a member of the 2008 Summer Olympics Men’s Basketball coaching staff.
