Coming up in the 2012-13 season, some of the best college basketball coaches are getting ready to get their hands on some big wins.
Each of these coaches just needs a relatively small handful of victories to hit a memorable mark that will serve as a signpost to their career success.
This past season, several coaches did the same thing:
- Mike Krzyzewski became the all-time wins leader, and now has 927 W's.
- Rick Pitino blew past the 600-win line—he now has 627 career wins.
- Early this past season, Tom Izzo got his 400th win. He now has a record of 412-169.
Here's a quick look at 15 successful college coaches who are headed for some milestone wins in the upcoming season.
