Steve Wojciechowski to replace Buzz Williams as Marquette head coach

Marquette has hired Duke associate head coach Steve Wojciechowski to replace Buzz Williams, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

Wojciechowski, who played at Duke from 1994-1998, joined the Duke coaching staff for the 1999-2000 season and has been on the sidelines for Mike Krzyzewski ever since. Known for slapping the floor and his spunky defense, Wojciechowski was named National Defensive Player of the Year in 1998. As an assistant, he worked primarily with the big men despite playing as a guard.

Wojciechowski is Krzyzewski's second top assistant in as many years to accept a head coaching gig after Chris Collins left last year to take the reins at Northwestern.

Wojo, as he is affectionately known, replaces Williams, who took the head coaching position at Virginia Tech.

Wojciechowski also assisted Krzyzewski with his Team USA duties, working on the teams that won Olympic gold in 2008 and 2012.
