After five NCAA championships, three Olympic gold medals and more eye-popping records than anyone could have imagined when he took over at Duke in 1980, Mike Krzyzewski's initial remarks on his retirement mirror his career: classy.

"My family and I view today as a celebration," Krzyzewski said in a statement released Wednesday evening.

That, coupled with 11 unforgettable years as the United States National Team coach, has resulted in a remarkable journey. Certainly, I have been blessed to coach some of the finest young men and greatest players in basketball history as a direct result of these unique opportunities.
