Marquette has picked Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski as its next men's basketball coach.

The school announced its hiring of the 37-year-old Wojciechowski on Tuesday.

University President-Elect Michael Lovell says in a statement that Wojciechowski has "led under one of the top coaches in the nation" in Duke's Mike Krzyzewski.

Lovell says he "quickly became confident and convinced" that Wojciechowski was the right fit.

He 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 Krzyzewski assistant in two years to land a head coaching job at a program in a major conference. Chris Collins just finished his first season at Northwestern.
