Who is Jon Scheyer’s wife? Partner, salary and more of Duke coach in waiting who recently took charge of the Blue Devils on a road trip to take on Wake Forest.
On Wednesday, 2 June 2021, Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski announced he would retire after the 2021-22 season. Coach K is the winningest coach in Division I men’s basketball history and has led the Blue Devils to five national championships in his 41 seasons there.
Duke associate head coach Jon Scheyer, who played for Krzyzewski from 2006 to 2010, was named Krzyzewski’s successor.
“Duke University has been a central part of my life for more than a decade and I could not ask for a better place to continue my career,” Scheyer said in a statement. “This is absolutely humbling.”
Scheyer leads Duke to win over Wake Forest
Scheyer was due to spend the season as coach-in-waiting before taking over after that. However, we got a early glimpse of him at the helm as he took charge of Duke’s recent game against Wake Forest.
It was announced earlier in the day that Coach K would miss the game because of an illness. As a result, Scheyer took on head coaching responsibilities. And it went well, Duke won 76-64 against a Wake Forest team that had been 10-0 at home this season.
It was actually Scheyer’s second-ever game as a head coach. He filled in for Krzyzewski against Boston College in January 2021 when Coach K was in quarantine.
Jon Scheyer’s Duke salary
Jon Scheyer is expected to make a good amount of money coaching Duke when he takes the role full time. Scheyer is likely to earn an average salary of $7 million per year, which was the same as Mike Krzyzewski during his time at Duke.
However, sources say Jon Scheyer’s Duke salary could reach as much as $10 million per year after bonuses.
