Mike Krzyzewski may be retiring from coaching the Duke Men’s Basketball team at the end of this season, but he’s not retiring from his radio show just yet. SiriusXM announced that Krzyzewski is returning for the 17th season of Basketball and Beyond with Coach K airing every Thursday at 6 p.m. ET on ESPNU Radio.

The show features Coach K and his co-host Dave Sims chopping up all of the latest topics throughout the sports world and interviews with a litany of successful voices.

“Dave and I are extremely fortunate to start our 17th season of Basketball and Beyond together,” Krzyzewski said in a press release. “During the demands of a college basketball season, this show is something I truly look forward to each week.”

Krzyzewski is arguably the greatest college basketball coach of all time, amassing 1,170 wins thus far, 87 more than the next closest coach in the sport’s history.

“It provides us with the opportunity to find out what makes such prominent guests great, to determine why and how leaders do what they do, and to have some fun within the world of sports and beyond. I am honored to be part of the SiriusXM team, and we’ll be sure that our listeners enjoy the journey of the 2021-22 season right along with us.”

Coach K has a chance to bring another national title back home to Durham, NC. Duke has a loaded roster of young talent and enters the season ranked ninth in the AP Top 25 poll.

“It is extraordinary what Coach has accomplished in his career, and the impact he has had on people both in basketball and the world beyond it,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s president and chief content officer. “It is a unique privilege to hear his perspective on the game and the larger world around it for an hour every week, and his conversations with other people at the top of their professions are always fascinating.”

If he can’t add one more NCAA trophy, Coach K will end his career with five national championships. Second all-time behind the “Wizard of Westwood” John Wooden.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
