Duke is bringing back former basketball player Jon Scheyer as a special assistant. Coach Mike Krzyzewski announced Scheyer's hiring Monday. Scheyer was a captain on the Blue Devils' last national championship team in 2010. His hiring fills a hole that opened after longtime Duke assistant Chris Collins left to take over at Northwestern.

He played in the NBADL and overseas after concluding his Duke career.
