GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (June 14, 2013) – A soldier assigned to the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies will chat with one of the most successful coaches in college basketball who is also the head coach of the U.S. Olympic hoops team.
Sergeant 1st Class Derrick Chambers, the NCO in charge military personnel for the Marshall Center, will talk online with Duke University basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski at 4 p.m. EDT Monday, June 17, in an event called “Hangout with Coach K on U.S. Army Google+.”
Chambers will join soldiers from around the world talking to the coach about leadership, basketball and a number of other topics. Chambers, a University of North Carolina basketball fan, said he was excited about the opportunity to speak with the coach and get his take on a number of issues.
“Of course, he’s a great leader and that shows through in every facet we in the public see,” Chambers said, “I mean his record speaks for itself. So, I’m looking forward to being able to ask him a few questions and here what he has to say about things.”
Chambers said in addition to discussion of hoops, he's looking forward to Krzyzewski's views on leadership, followership and whatever he can glean from the coach.
