Mike Krzyzewski’s wife Mickie Krzyzewski is formerly Carol Marsh, who also goes by Mickie. The couple was married in the West Point Chapel on the day of his graduation in 1969. That’s one hell of an afternoon, huh? On their 35th anniversary in 2004, the couple renewed their vows at the Duke Chapel. The Krzyewski’s apparently bleed Duke Blue forever, despite Mickie going to college in Tennessee.
Mike Krzyzewski’s wife Mickie Krzyzewski has given birth to the couple’s has three children, all daughters, Debbie, Lindy and Jamie. In an interview with the Duke Chronicle, Mickie explains that despite being the most recognizable person on the Duke campus, it wasn’t all Duke at the home with four ladies:
Well, when our daughters were children and living at home, a very important thing that I believe that we did was we never had any Duke memorabilia hanging in the house. The house was not decorated in Duke blue, it was actually more decorated in pink because we had three daughters. Lace and pink. Mike used to always go, “I can’t believe I’m living in lace and pink.” But the things that we would hang in our house or on our fridge was stuff that the girls had accomplished. So there was no Duke hanging in the house. We tried to make sure that they knew that they came first to us and that they were more important to us.
Mike Krzyzewski’s wife Mickie has become a regular fixture in the Durham, NC area’s charitable community. Both Mike and Mickie have served as co-chairs for Duke Children’s Miracle Network Telethon, and been involved in numerous campaigns against drug abuse and drunk driving. Coach K’s wife also helped to establish the Krzyzewski Family Scholarship Endowment, which provides $100,000 in scholarships for Duke students from North and South Carolina.
