The Duke Blue Devils were upset by hated rival North Carolina in Coach K’s final game on Saturday.
The back-and-forth contest was highly entertaining. The two teams traded leads in the final minute and a half of action, but it was North Carolina that prevailed with an 81-77 victory.
The Final Four loss ends Duke’s season while it sends the Tar Heels to the national championship. Krzyzewski has now had two send offs ruined by his arch-nemesis as UNC also defeated Duke in his final home game.
As expected, the social media reaction was wild.
While most people were talking about the game, itself, many were also taking time to reflect on Coach K’s coaching career. That also meant debating about the future.
Can he really go out like this? A loss to North Carolina in his final game?
Some don’t think so, and they’re waiting for a comeback announcement from the coaching legend. Fittingly, they’re using Tom Brady as a reference for their un-retirement hopes.
Fans Debate Coach K’s Future
Earlier this year, Tom Brady decided to hang up the cleats for good, announcing that he’d be stepping away from the game of football. That lasted all of two months before Brady broke the news of his return from retirement.
Now, fans are wondering if Coach K will do the same.
Check out the Twitter reaction below.
Might need to give Coach K a call, @TomBrady 😅
