    Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of the Duke Blue Devils and the USA Basketball Men’s National Team, debuts the 10th season of his weekly SiriusXM show, “Basketball and Beyond with Coach K”, Thursday, October 23 (6:00 pm ET) on SiriusXM College Sports Nation, channel 91.

    Coach K will be joined on the season premiere by Kansas Jayhawks head basketball coach Bill Self and Denver Nuggets/U.S. Men’s National Team forward Kenneth Faried.  Throughout the season, a new edition of Basketball and Beyond will air every Thursday on SiriusXM College Sports Nation, which is available on satellite radios, on the SiriusXM Internet Radio App and at SiriusXM.com.  Each show will also be available on SiriusXM On Demand.

    “It is amazing that we have been part of the SiriusXM team for a decade,” said Krzyzewski. “Working side by side with my partner Dave Sims, we have tried to deliver compelling conversations to our listeners over the past nine seasons. I am certain our 10th year will be no different. We’re very proud of the show and we thoroughly enjoy doing it each week throughout college basketball season. We are excited to get started this week with two outstanding guests in Coach Self and Kenneth Faried.”

    “We’re honored and excited to be embarking on a 10th season of Basketball and Beyond,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer.  “Coach K is one of the most exceptional figures of our time.  To have him on SiriusXM all these years sharing his perspective and inspiring people, in sports and in their daily lives, is truly special.”

    Basketball and Beyond features Coach K discussing a wide array of subjects and interviewing successful people from sports, entertainment, government and more.  Some of the high profile guests who have joined Krzyzewski on the program over the past nine seasons include former NBA Commissioner David Stern, General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, fellow coaching greats Bob Knight, John Madden, Pat Summitt , Joe Torre, Bill Belichick and many others.

    Over 39 years as a head basketball coach, 34 of them at Duke University, Coach K has built one of the most extraordinary coaching resumes in sports history.  He is the all-time winningest head coach in NCAA Men’s Division I basketball history with 983 victories, and has led Duke to four NCAA Championships, 13 ACC Tournament championships and 11 Final Four appearances. He was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2001.

    Krzyzewski has been involved with USA Basketball as a coach on and off since 1979, when he started out as an assistant to Bob Knight.  Over that time he has helped lead the U.S. to 10 gold medals, two silver medals and two bronze medals.  Since 2005, when USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo selected Krzyzewski as the Senior Men’s National Team head coach, the USA is an extraordinary 75-1 in major international competitions.

    In addition to Coach K’s program, SiriusXM carries live play-by-play coverage of Duke basketball games throughout the season.  SiriusXM is the leading broadcaster of live college sporting events and offers play by play from the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Big East, Pac 12, SEC, American Athletic Conference and other NCAA Division I conferences.

When you care about someone or something, you show genuine concern for that person or thing, in good times or bad. When you care about one another and about your purpose, you are compelled to put your feelings into action. Care creates an atmosphere that breeds success and gives you the confidence to try again.

- Coach K

You have to adapt what you do based on who you are. In teaching, you must remember that no group or individual is the same as who you taught the day before, the year before, or the decade before. Your plan has to suit who you and your team are right now.

- Coach K

Belief can mean the difference between a fear of failure and the courage to try. On a team or in a family, belief makes each individual stronger and also fortifies the group as a whole. The basis of belief is in individual relationships.

- Coach K
Collective Responsibility

We win and we lose together. Handling the responsibility for wins and losses together removes the burden from one individual’s shoulders and distributes it among each member of the team. That atmosphere is conducive to high-level performance and places you and your team in the position to be bold and unafraid, and if you should lose, you are not alone.

- Coach K

Effective teamwork begins and ends with communication. Communication does not always occur naturally, and must be taught and practiced in order to bring everyone together as one. The most crucial element of communicating is telling the truth.

- Coach K

No matter how successful you believe yourself to be, you can never feel as if you’ve reached the absolute pinnacle. There are always new and wonderful challenges out there, and part of maintaining success is knowing when you need to accept them.

- Coach K

Adversity can teach you more about yourself than any success, and overcoming an obstacle can sometimes feel even better than achieving an easy victory. Through adversity, you can discover things about your endurance, your ability to turn a negative into a positive, and your personal strength of heart.

- Coach K

Take care not to allow one aspect of your life to so consume you that you neglect the others. Balance can put things in perspective, can bring you joy even when you are down, and can allow you to be at your best in all aspects of your life.

- Coach K

When you are winning, your commitment is never challenged. But loyalty and dedication during difficult times can be tough. When commitment doesn’t waver, that’s when you have the greatest chance of winning. You can never give up.

- Coach K

You can possess countless good qualities as an individual, but if you don”t have the courage to proceed, you may never see those qualities come into fruition. It takes courage to put what you believe to be best of you on the line, to test it, and to see how far it takes you. Courage means daring to do what you imagine.
