Duke had a great gift for former Coach Mike Krzyzewski as he rides off into the sunset.

Coach K retired at the end of this past season, and he finally decided to hang up his whistle after arguably the greatest run in the history of college basketball. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

With five national titles and 13 Final Four appearances, there’s no doubt Coach K has secured his spot in history.

Well, Duke wanted to send him off in style and they gave him a little puppy to raise as his retirement gift. You can watch the touching video below.

Damn, when it comes to awesome gifts, I’m not sure there’s a gift that’s really much better than this one. Getting a puppy that you can raise is about as good as it gets.

Obviously, I’m incredibly biased because I love dogs, but this seems like a match in heaven. Coach K loves coaching, but he now has a ton of free time on his hand.

How do you fix that? You get him a puppy that needs constant attention and training.

Early predictions suggest this dog will win at least a couple rings before it’s all said and done!
