Wait, how does it say his last name should be pronounced? Ah, turns out, it's all in good fun.

This right here is a look at a young Mike Krzyzewski, well before he became "Coach K." Krzyzewski famously played under Bob Knight while at Army. I can't ever recall seeing a photo of him in his cadet regalia. This comes from the school yearbook back in '69.

Nice shot. Cute kid. And one of the greatest coaches in the history of basketball. You'd never know it back then.
