Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mike Elko hired as Duke head coach

The News & Observer

Duke landed its next football coach as Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mike Elko’s job is to return Duke to the successes David Cutcliffe brought the program during his 14 seasons.

Following a search process that lasted two days shy of two weeks, the school and Elko agreed on a deal Friday for him to take over a Blue Devils program that’s suffered through three consecutive losing seasons.

Duke and Cutcliffe agreed to part ways on Nov. 28, one day after the Blue Devils lost 47-10 to Miami to finish 3-9 and 0-8 in ACC play. It was the school’s first winless ACC campaign since 2007.
