Scheyer was reported to be the favorite to replace Coach K from the moment the news was announced. A few familiar names reportedly were the runners-up in the situation.
Scheyer, 33, played at Duke from 2006-2010. He later played professionally in Spain, Israel and the G League. Scheyer became an assistant on Coach K’s staff in 2014 and was promoted to associate head coach in 2018.
Between Hubert Davis and now Scheyer, the UNC-Duke rivalry will have a new look very soon.
