  'Aw, shucks': Michigan coach Juwan Howard inadvertently commits minor NCAA violation New Michigan basketball coach Juwan Howard accidentally committed a minor NCAA violation Monday afternoon when he mentioned recruits by name.Howard, entering his first season as a head coach — and college coach — was asked a general question about recruiting.

Mike Krzyzewski , the all-time winningest coach in college basketball, committed a faux-pas Friday after the Chicago Tribune asked him Duke ’s Mike Krzyzewski commits a minor NCAA violation by mentioning unsigned recruit DJ Steward when answering a question about recruiting Chicago.

A throw-in violation and a subsequent technical foul called on Coach Mike Krzyzewski in a Big 10/ACC Challenge game between Michigan v. Duke on December 3

Unforced errors are the bane of every coach’s existence. They often occur when a team is pressing, or trying too hard to play perfectly. They almost always come back to bite you.

This is especially true in college — where what happens on the court is only one part of the game.

So it’s easy to consider what Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said on Friday night one of the more boneheaded plays he’ll make all year. While answering a question about his love of recruiting in his hometown of Chicago, Coach K accidentally committed an NCAA violation by mentioning a recruit who hadn’t yet officially signed with Duke.

Cade Cunningham, 2020's No. 2 recruit, commits to Oklahoma State

  Cade Cunningham, 2020's No. 2 recruit, commits to Oklahoma State Oklahoma State landed a massive recruit for the 2020-21 season.Cunningham is a consensus five-star recruit and is the highest-rated point guard out of his class, per 247Sports' Composite rankings. The Texas native sizes up at 6-7 and 215 pounds and is a product of Montverde Academy in Florida.

Timeline for Coach K leaving Duke . There's no telling when Krzyzewski will hang it up, and what about how he'll do it? One source said Krzyzewski has reached such an age that he's taken to evaluating his program and the state of his life and career after the urgency and clamor of a season has passed.

A Duke University official says the North Carolina school is self- reporting a possible recruiting violation by one of its associate coaches . Jon Jackson, Duke associate athletics director for communications, said associate head basketball coach Chris Collins' alleged violation is being

“I just enjoy recruiting anywhere there’s a good player, great kid who wants to come to Duke,” Krzyzewski said, according to the Chicago Tribune. “We’ve had a few of those in Chicago, one that’s there right now in DJ, and we’re happy that they finally stopped the teacher’s strike so he could go to Whitney Young and qualify to come here, although he’s qualified. Chicago’s a great town and I always love going back.”

The DJ in question is DJ Steward, a five-star shooting guard who announced his commitment to Duke on Twitter weeks ago.

Unfortunately for Krzyzewski, the NCAA doesn’t treat tweets from recruits with the same authority as it does, say, a signed national letter of intent. Until that happens, coaches must take the Sergeant Schultz approach to recruiting: see nothing, hear nothing, know nothing — yes, even in 2019 when adhering to such a policy requires blindfolds and earmuffs at a minimum.

Report: Red Sox name former MLBer Dave Bush pitching coach

  Report: Red Sox name former MLBer Dave Bush pitching coach Since retiring from baseball, Bush has spent time as an envoy coach for MLB International, acting as the pitching coach for national teams from China and South Africa. Bush joined the Red Sox organization back in 2016 as a pitching development analyst. This will be his first full-time coaching role in the bigs.

Previously infallible Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski may have violated NCAA rules when he offered a scholarship to a recruit during an AAU According to the source, Duke would likely accept penalties for a minor violation . In a statement, Duke spokesman Jon Jackson stated the obvious

Duke Basketball and Football scores, news, headlines, articles, schedule, players, photos, videos, rumors, bleacher reports and highlights. Out of nowhere Duke snags yet another commit as AJ Griffin told Evan Daniels of 247Sports that he has committed to Duke : “I picked Duke because when I

After Coach K mentioned Steward by name, the Tribune noted the school would report the violation to the NCAA.

Krzyzewski should undoubtedly know better. That doesn’t make this being a potential violation any less silly.

Not only did Steward put together a hype video for his announcement, but the high school senior wrote a blog for USA Today about his decision.

“Most of you know that I committed and it’s just a great feeling to be a part of The Brotherhood,” Steward wrote. “I’ve always dreamt about playing at the highest level and now I’m going to Duke. I feel like this will put me in the best position to potentially be able to play at the highest level one day.”

Only Duke is not allowed to act like it knows Steward will sign with the Blue Devils.

Will anything come of this? Probably not. For one, it’s a pretty innocuous mistake. For another, the NCAA’s own standards deem this a Level III violation, the punishment for which is, “rules education to the involved institutional staff member.”

Greg Paulus' unconventional road after Duke leads him to head coaching job at Niagara

  Greg Paulus' unconventional road after Duke leads him to head coaching job at Niagara Greg Paulus' career playing point guard at Duke and quarterback at Syracuse was anything but conventional, and his path as a coach has been even more so. At 33, Paulus was named head coach of the Niagara Purple Eagles. There no longer is an “interim” attached to his name, and he was presented with a multi-year contract to run the school’s men’s basketball program.

Mike Krzyzewski has created a situation in which he is no longer selling the Duke brand, he IS the A trope it is, indeed. Rarely is there mention of his treatment of William Avery— a lottery pick, for what Multiple top-10 recruits in each of the past FIVE recruiting classes just decided Duke was cool again?

Violation : Assistant coach Mike Stoops returned a phone call after receiving a call from the recruit that same day. Violation : Head coach Lon Kruger commented on an unsigned recruit during the television broadcast of the school's spring football game.

It’s hard to imagine anyone from the NCAA attempting to “educate” Krzyzewski on recruiting.

That time would be better spent revisiting the effectiveness of a rule that requires feigned obliviousness in order to adhere to it.
