Marquette Hires Duke Assistant Wojciechowski

Steve Wojciechowski, associate head coach under Mike Krzyzewski at Duke University, has been named the 17th head coach of the Marquette University men’s basketball program, announced President-Elect Dr. Michael R. Lovell and Interim President Robert A. Wild, S.J.

Wojciechowski, 37, served as an assistant coach at Duke since the 1999-2000 season and was promoted to associate head coach in the summer of 2008. As a player and coach, he is a part of Duke’s winning tradition, serving on the coaching staff for two NCAA tournament champions. During his tenure, the Blue Devils posted an incredible 441-92 record and competed in the NCAA tournament every year.

“Steve has led under one of the top coaches in the nation for more than a decade, and he is committed to leading our student-athletes to success both on and off the court, Lovell said. In my conversations with Steve, I quickly became confident and convinced that he will immediately build on Marquette’s longstanding tradition of excellence in basketball. His work ethic combined with his experience makes him the perfect fit for our future.”

“Steve Wojciechowski is a proven winner and has excelled as both an associate head coach and player at the highest level of men’s basketball, Father Wild said. This follows our historic news of President-Elect Lovell last week and continues our momentum to take a great university and basketball program to even loftier heights.”

Wojciechowski also served as court coach and scout for the USA Basketball Men’s Senior National Team. He helped lead on-court duties as well as game preparation from 2006-12, including the program’s gold-medal performance at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2012 London Olympics. The Olympic teams included NBA greats such as Marquette alumnus Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
