PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Duke Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski is in Providence this week as his team gets ready to play in the NCAA Tournament.

Krzyzewski isn’t from here and he’s never worked here, but he does have a very strong connection to Rhode Island in Bryant’s head lacrosse coach.

There’s a special moment in the above video where Eyewitness News Sports Reporter Mark Dondero asks Coach K about his friend, Mike Pressler. Coach K’s eyes light up at the mere mention of his buddies’ name.

Watch the video to hear Coach K and Mike Pressler reflect on their friendship that developed while both were coaching at Duke.
