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 out on the tournament this year.

Wojciechowski becomes the second Krzyzewski assistant in two years to leave for a head coaching job.  Chris Collins left a year ago to take the head coaching job at Northwestern.
