That's the length of Coach K's bio on the Duke athletics web site, according to The Wall Street Journal (http://professional.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324196204578298310238788692.html?m g=reno64-wsj).


According to the story, that's the longest bio of any college basketball coach. By comparison, Jim Boeheim's bio is only 728 words. Want to guess whose bio is second longest?












Rick Barnes at 7,729 words.

Thanks for the link! I love trivia (undefeated jeapordy champ for 10+ years at my house) and this is a great little nugget. Wonder how long it took the author to count all the words in all the bios in D1 ball ;)
