    Photo: Not exactly flattering!

    There are probably over a million photos of Coach K hanging around on the Internet. Some are pretty bad; others bring out his humanity and intelligence.

    The one you have on the Main Page...? In my book, it scores a 0 out of 10.

    Could you please find a better one? Try googling "Coach K" and there are a bunch that are really nice.

    Thanks!

    I'm assuming DBR chose that photo because it's free to distribute since it's not copyrighted. Photo page on wikipedia, originally taken from US Dept of Defense webpage Since it's the work of the federal gov't, it's in public domain. You can't just google "coach K" and select your favorite photo because DBR respects the copyright of others. But I agree it's not the greatest photo....

    I was thinking the exact same thing! He looks like he's trying to be feminine!

    Bad picture.

    I have several on my site, most of which show Coach in a teaching or coaching mode. That's his element, IMO. My friends or the owners of DBR can use any of my pictures.

    Yes, please change the photo... it looks like it belongs on a Carolina fan site.

    And not only will it be on a Carolina site, but it will have been photo shopped to make it worse than it really is!

    Well, it's not the most flattering pic of our coach.

    Still, I'm reminded of a comment from an old Iron Duke shortly after Coach K got the job here (this might have been at a Blue Devil club meeting, or perhaps on the call-in radio show). The fellow said, "I saw you, Coach, and then I saw how pretty your wife is, and I realized you must be a pretty good recruiter."
