Duke associate head coach Steve Wojciechowski has agreed to become Marquette's next head men's basketball coach, the school announced Tuesday, confirming an earlier report by USA TODAY Sports.
Wojciechowski, 37, played at Duke and has been on Mike Krzyzewski's staff since 1999. He was elevated to associate head coach in 2008.
He becomes the 12th former Kryzezewski player or assistant to become a head coach at a Division I school.
"I am absolutely thrilled for Steve, Lindsay and the boys, and for Marquette," Krzyzewski said in a statement on Duke's website. "Steve gave his heart and soul to me, our program, our community and Duke for 20 years. He was a vital part of the successes we have had. He made me better every day and I know that he will make Marquette and the Milwaukee community better every day. He is a very special coach and person."
He was on the staff for two Duke national championships (2001, 2010).
Wojciechowski will replace Buzz Williams, who left Marquette for Virginia Tech after a 17-15 season. Williams took Marquette to the NCAA tournament in five of his six seasons there.
"Steve has led under one of the top coaches in the nation for more than a decade, and he is committed to leading our student-athletes to success both on and off the court," Marquette President-Elect Michael R. Lovell said. "In my conversations with Steve, I quickly became confident and convinced that he will immediately build on Marquette's longstanding tradition of excellence in basketball. His work ethic combined with his experience makes him the perfect fit for our future."
