DUKE COMMITS TO COACK K: Coach Mike Krzyzewski agreed to a contract that will keep him with the Blue Devils through at least 2011, extending a run that has produced three NCAA championships, six ACC titles and 533 victories.

The deal takes the 54-year-old through the university retirement age of 65. School officials said the contract is open-ended and could roll over for longer.

It also gives him the title of special assistant to the president, a position Krzyzewski said he intends to hold after he retires as coach.

"There's no definitive time," Krzyzewski said at a news conference. "I don't feel like 54. I feel I can do this for a while."
