    Excellent news. Everything that has been written and said about Dariq makes him seem like someone you want in your program. Congrats to Coach Scheyer and staff, let's keep this train rolling.

    His name resonates with the great Dominique Wilkins. Perhaps his game somewhat too.

    Welcome Dariq!

    Watched some videos. What was exciting was seeing some defensive and hustle plays among all the highlight buckets. Looking forward to seeing him in Duke Blue.

    And second, that Whitehead said this: “[Scheyer] played and coached with Coach K. I have been impressed with him and believe in him.”

    If this is an indication, Coach Scheyer is resonating with these new young recruits... even knowing that Coach K will not "really" be there as their coach.

    What would happen with Coach Cal and Kentucky nation if Coach Scheyer gets the number one recruiting class of 2022???

    =========
    And I have a question. Coach K will retain his office in the Duke basketball complex. Since he will no longer be officially affiliated with Duke basketball, can he work with any and all Duke players on his own time and players own time? Kinda like, if I went to Card Gym when the guys are playing pick-up, can I work with these guys, essentially "coaching" them? Or, does the NCAA have rules/limits on "who" can work out with players... Maybe Coach K being a Duke employee sets his limits on contact?

    I believe the NCAA has strict limits on the number of coaches in basketball -- which is why various guys at Duke on the coaching ladder start as "director of operations" or some such title, which is what Nolan Smith and Chris Carrawell did before moving up.

    Maybe Coach K can take a few classes at Fuqua and then be a grad assistant?

    I believe the NCAA only restricts what the PROGRAM can do, but the players can independently train/play on their own. So, ironically, it's a bit of a loophole that if Coach K is NOT officially affiliated with Duke, if he was spending time with the players, I think it would NOT count against program hours...But I could be wrong.

    I think Coach K actually called out the ridiculousness of this rule and the NCAA has increased the time programs can spend with their players, knowing that players were spending the time training with outside sources anyways. (This was an "out of season"/summer rule that I'm specifically talking about. During the season also has a max hours rule, but it's much much more.)

    I assume itís PAID coaches, not consultants/motivational speakers, which Iím sure Duke will list Coach K as.

    Coach K will be heavily involved with the team in 22-23. To me, thatís a certainty. He just wonít be paid.

    It will count. Anyone who can be defined as a "booster" would count for purposes of coaching. NCAA has strict rules about the numbers of coaches, but even stricter rules about who can do what as a program "affiliate". They removed almost all of the grey areas, which is why the athletics rulebook is so incredibly long and detailed. There is no loophole here, and Coach K cannot work with players "on the side". He can advise coaches and staff all he wants, but direct player contact isn't happening.

    Would that apply to any kind of contact? For example, if Coach K has had some contact with an incoming player in the past, could he continue to speak with the player--congratulate him on good play, offer sage advice about how to balance academic and athletic commitments, ask how his mother is doing, advise him on whether to leave school after his first year and/or put him in touch with NBA scouts? None of these is "coaching" as such, though all could be supportive and beneficial.

    No, he could be sociable and offer sage advice. He cannot "provide technical or tactical instruction related to the sport to the student-athlete at any time". Congratulate him on good play, yes. "Great game, tonight!" Fine. Explain what, exactly, he did that was particularly good or bad would be a no-no. "You were at your best when you drove to your left." Not fine.

    Keep in mind, I'm not an expert in the nuances of NCAA rules, I'm just familiar enough with them to be dangerous. But my understanding of the rules is that they are both specific and highly inflexible.

    Coach Scheyer, perhaps even more than the NCAA, would rightfully be the one to set limits on what contact, if any, Coach K would be allowed to have with Coach Scheyerís players.

    So... Coach K and Coach Scheyer and staff can have their own "private" film session... no players at all... and Coach K can impart his observations to the coaching staff without problems? Assuming, if course, that Coach Scheyer would welcome that interaction.
