Coach K has Hots for Beyonce, is Human like the Rest of Us

Team USA and Duke Blue Devils head coach Mike Krzyzewski next plans aren’t about tapping new NBA stars to play for the U.S. national team or recruiting new players for his school, but probably making the right moves on popular singer Beyonce.
That is, after getting tongue-tied the first time he met Beyonce at the 2012 Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year dinner when he presented Miami Heat star LeBron James the Sportsman of the Year award.
"I really love Jay-Z, but I'm madly in love with Beyonce," Coach K revealed while talking to Duke’s season tickets holders.
Here’s Coach K’s anecdote on the 2012 incident with Beyonce (watch actual YouTube clip of his account below, at around the 11:00 minute mark):
“I go up to Beyonce. You know how guys think they have a lot of good lines? And, so I go up and I'm nervous as I can be. I'm like a teenager. And I go to her with a great line. I say, 'Hi, I'm Coach K.' And she said, 'Coach, I know who you are. I just listened to you for 10 minutes.' Like, patting me on the head. Little boy. So now I feel like I'm 11. So what's my next line? I come up and I say, 'You're my favorite.' My face is red as can be, you know, I'm like 4 feet tall right now. And she says, 'Well, that's nice.' And I asked her -- and I don't usually do this -- but I said, 'Would you take a picture with me?' So she takes a picture with me and I look, really, like I'm 12.”
And here’s the picture of Beyonce with Coach K (he’s the one with the rosy-red cheeks):
Krzyzewski has led the Blue Devils to four NCAA titles and the United States men’s basketball national to two Olympic gold medals.
