A recent Dr. Phil interview with Duke Basketball Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski that was initially banned from broadcast has surfaced.

The interview was conducted shortly after Krzyzewski announced his retirement from coaching. According to reports, the interview was supposed to focus on Coach K’s membership in both the Naismith Memorial Basketball and Grecian Formula halls of fame.

“Dr. Phil was incensed,” said Gene Sutton, a Bucklesberry native who was in the audience during the taping of the Krzyzewski episode. “The heat of the stage lights caused the coach’s hair dye to run down his neck and short circuit an expensive microphone.”
