Christian Laettner says you got to start your coaching career somewhere.
He’s chosen to do so with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
I caught up with the former Duke All-American, who led the Blue Devils to back-to-back national titles 20 years ago in 1992, at shootaround earlier this afternoon before tonight’s game at 7 against the Erie BayHawks at Tullio Arena.
Laettner is in his first year as an assistant with the Mad Ants. Below he talks about being an assistant and how much of his coaching style is a reflection of playing for Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski.
