Charlotte — While addressing the media at ACC Operation Basketball, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski addressed a plethora of topics, including name, image and likeness. Starting from the top, Coach K spoke out in favor of the Fair Pay to Play Act.
Krzyzewski said this type of legislation became a necessity because the NCAA lagged behind for years. The legendary head coach stated the California law, which will come into effect in 2023, “pushes the issue.”
Mike Krzyzewski is in favor of what California governor @GavinNewsom did, said dozens of states will pass legislation by end of 2019-20 season .”We need to stay current with what’s happening. I’m glad it was passed because it pushes the envelope, it pushes the issue.”
