    A person familiar with the situation says Marquette has hired Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski as its next men’s basketball coach.

    The person spoke to The Associated Press Tuesday on condition of anonymity because Marquette has not announced Wojciechowski’s hiring.

    The 37-year-old Wojciechowski takes over for Buzz Williams, who left for Virginia Tech last month. He led Marquette to a 139-69 record and five NCAA tournament appearances in six seasons but missed the tournament this year.

    Wojciechowski becomes the second Mike Krzyzewski assistant in two years to land a head coaching job at a program in a major conference. Chris Collins left last spring for Northwestern.
