Coach K's litter was born in January, 2001 during Duke University's 2000-2001 Men's Basketball National Championship season. During that year, Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski was honored with the naming of the basketball court at Cameron Indoor Stadium "Coach K Court". Coach K (the dog) is the namesake of Coach K (the man) and his registered name is from the court at Cameron. One of his littermates, also owned by a Duke alumni, has the call name "Cameron".
