Aaron Torres Podcast: Weird Coach K press conference, programs who benefit most from Coach K retirement + Nick Coffey

As promised we’ve got ourselves a Friday bonus episode, as Aaron takes a deeper dive into Coach K’s retirement. He discusses Thursday’s bizarre Coach K press conference, the programs who benefit most from Coach K’s retirement and why Jon Scheyer seems destined to fail. Then he welcomes on Nick Coffey to discuss the retirement, state of Louisville basketball and the Dino Gaudio situation. Here is a full rundown:

Weird Coach K press conference + programs who benefit most from his retirement: Aaron opens the show by discussing Thursday’s bizarre Coach K retirement press conference, which felt more like a televangelists’ service than a press conference (2:30). Then he discusses why Jon Scheyer seems destined to fail (4:45) and names seven programs that will benefit most from Coach K’s retirements (8:30). Some, like UNC and Kentucky are obvious. Some might surprise you though.

Nick Coffey joins the show: Next up, Louisville radio host and old friend Nick Coffey joins the show to discuss all that’s going on the world of college sports (31:00). They hit on Coach K’s retirement and wonder, “is Duke a great program or is it all Coach K?” Then from there, Nick gets us caught up on the state of things in Louisville. They discuss how much pressure is on Chris Mack going into this season four (51:00) and also, everything surrounding the Dino Gaudio extortion case.
