Coach K Debuts New Season Of His Weekly SiriusXM Show Tonight

NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of the Duke University and USA Men's Basketball teams, will debut the eighth season of his weekly SiriusXM show, Basketball and Beyond with Coach K, tonight, October 24 ( 7:00 pm ET), on Mad Dog Radio, channel 86.

Following the debut show a new episode will premier each week through college basketball season on Mad Dog Radio and will replay multiple times on SiriusXM College Sports Nation, channel 91.

After each week's debut broadcast, Basketball and Beyond will be available on SiriusXM On Demand for subscribers listening via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices or online at SiriusXM.com.  Visit www.siriusxm.com/ondemand for more info on SiriusXM On Demand.

On tonight's season premier, Coach K will interview Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter and University of Louisville Men's Basketball coach Rick Pitino.

"I'm very excited to be back for another season of Basketball and Beyond and thrilled to have two very accomplished people like Buck and Rick join me for the debut show," said Krzyzewski.  "Going into our eighth season, I can say that hosting the show gets better and more enjoyable every year.  Like I tell our players at Duke, we must always build on what we've done in the past.  As SiriusXM's subscriber base continues to grow and more and more listeners tune in year after year, we will continue to work hard to make this a compelling and informative show for our audience each week."

"Coach K is one of the great sports icons of our time and his accomplishments in the game of basketball and beyond the game are extraordinary," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer.  "His interests and insight extend well beyond the court, too, and Basketball and Beyond gives our listeners a venue to connect with him in a way that is unique, enlightening, entertaining and often inspiring.  Week after week the show delivers a one-of-a-kind radio experience and we're very excited for the launch of a new season."

Basketball and Beyond features Coach K discussing a wide array of subjects – from college basketball and other sports to current headline news and events.  Krzyzewski and his co-host, Dave Sims, interview a variety of special guests, including business leaders, coaches and athletes.  Guests who have joined Coach K on past programs include U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, NBA Commissioner David Stern, Bob Knight, Joe Torre, LeBron James, John Thompson, Kobe Bryant, Pat Summitt, John Madden, Nick Saban, and NASCAR legend Richard Petty.

Entering his 37 th season as a head coach, Coach K boasts one of the most impressive coaching resumes in sports history.  He is the all-time winningest head coach in Men's Division I basketball history with a record of 927-291.  He has led Duke to four NCAA Championships (1991, 1992, 2001 and 2010),13 ACC Tournament championships and 11 Final Four appearances.  Coach K has received 12 National Coach of the Year honors and his teams consistently boast one of the best graduation rates in college basketball.

Since USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo selected Krzyzewski as the Senior Men's National Team head coach, the USA is 62-1 in major international competitions, including gold at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, as well as the 2010 FIBA World Championship.  With the gold medal victory this past summer in London, Krzyzewski became just the second coach in USA men's history to earn consecutive Olympic golds.  As a team, the USA set U.S. Olympic records for 3-pointers made, attempted, and for 3-point field goal percentage. 

Krzyzewski was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2001.
