Krzyzewski spoke publicly Wednesday for the first time since a pair of offseason surgeries and said, "I don't have plans for the future" and that "I don't have a retirement thing."

The 69-year-old coach has dealt with some health issues during the past few months. He had knee replacement surgery on his left knee in April and had inguinal hernia surgery last month.
He also missed Duke's game at Georgia Tech last January because of a sudden illness that briefly had him hospitalized in the cardiac ward of the university's hospital.

Krzyzewski says he actually feels younger after "getting these things done."
Duke has the top freshman class in the country along with returning star Grayson Allen and senior leader Amile Jefferson and is an early favorite this year to possibly add a sixth NCAA championship to Krzyzewski's long list of basketball accomplishments.
Among the Blue Devils' six-man class are three Top 10 players in Harry Giles, considered the best high-schooler in the country, Jayson Tatum and Frank Jackson, both of whom starred in the McDonald's All-American Game. Duke also recently added prized big man Marques Bolden.
But before Krzyzewski turns his attention to another college ring, he is preparing to lead Team USA at the Summer Olympics in Rio in July.
