Coach K Staying Five More Years

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is committed to the school for at least five more years after Duke was knocked out of this year's March Madness.

Krzyzewski has committed to coach the U.S. team in the World Cup this summer in Spain and the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro as well.

"I'm looking forward to the next five years," Krzyzewski said on Wednesday.  "What do we do in the next five, not just what do we do next season. What are the decisions? The first thing is, I look at me. I'm going to be here."

Krzyzewski was hospitalized on March 4 after feeling light-headed during a loss at Wake Forest.

"This past year I had a few setbacks and I had an episode with health at the Wake game. I wanted to clear the air that I'm good. I'm going forward," he continued.

Krzyzewski leads all Division I men's coaches with 983 wins, but saw his team fall to 14-seeded Mercer in the second round of this year's tournament.

"I try not to look at how we run our program in one-year periods or based on one game, whether that means you've won the national championship or you got eliminated like we did this year," Krzyzewski said. "I really don't think that's the way to run a program."
