Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim went on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Thursday morning justy hours after a thrilling 78-75 victory over No. 10 Duke. The two spoke about the game, from John Gillon (which Boeheim called “lucky”) and Boeheim’s future at Syracuse.
“I don’t know what’s etched in stone these days,” Boeheim said. “I really don’t. There’s a plan in place, and we’re going to see what happens. But basically right now, I might be done this year. You just don’t know. You just have to wait until the season’s over.”
That would be a twist. In 2015, Boeheim announced he would step down from his post following the 2017-18 season, handing the reins over to Mike Hopkins. But a recent Sports Illustrated report indicated Boeheim’s previous plan might be extended, noting he would like to retire on his own terms.
This would certainly be on his own terms, although a year ahead of schedule. Check out the full interview:
