It's official: Scheyer joins Duke staff

By

DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke is bringing back former basketball player Jon Scheyer as a special assistant.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski announced Scheyer's hiring Monday.

Scheyer, who starred in high school at Glenbrook North, was a captain on the Blue Devils' last national championship team in 2010. His hiring fills a hole that opened after longtime Duke assistant Chris Collins left to take over at Northwestern. Nate James was promoted from special assistant to replace Collins on the staff, and Scheyer was brought in to replace James.

Krzyzewski calls Scheyer "one of the greatest young men to ever wear the Duke uniform."

This marks Scheyer's first coaching position. He played in the NBADL and overseas after concluding his Duke career.
