  • Marquette found its replacement for Buzz Williams in Mike Krzyzewski's coaching tree.
    The Golden Eagles introduced Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski as their next men's basketball coach Tuesday.
    He replaces Williams, who left for Virginia Tech last month after leading Marquette to a 139-69 record and five NCAA tournament appearances in six seasons. The Golden Eagles missed the tournament this year.
    Wojciechowski is the second Krzyzewski assistant in two years to land a head coaching job at a program in a major conference. Chris Collins just finished his first season at Northwestern.
    Interim Marquette athletic director Bill Cords said Wojciechowski was the only finalist who wasn't already a head coach, but said he came highly recommended by Krzyzewski and by Jerry Colangelo, the former owner of the Phoenix Suns and director of USA Basketball. Wojciechowski assisted Krzyzewski with the U.S. national team from 2006-12.
