StFX University proclaims March 31st as ‘Coach K Day’

Antigonish, NS – StFX University is preparing to say goodbye to a coaching legend. Veteran X-Men Basketball head coach Steve Konchalski is retiring at the end of the month after 46 years behind the bench.

In honour of Coach Konchalski, StFX University President Dr. Andy Hakin has proclaimed that StFX University will be celebrating 'Coach K Day' on Wednesday, March 31st in tribute to our legendary coach.

On Coach K Day, we encourage all students, faculty and staff – along with the greater Antigonish community and alumni across the globe – to wear their StFX colors on March 31st in honour of Coach K! Everyone is encouraged to dress in blue and white to school or work, wear your StFX branded clothing, and feel free to send out pictures on social media using the hashtag #ThanksCoachK.

We also welcome those on campus to stroll by the outside of the Saputo Centre on March 31st between 12:00 – 1:00 pm to bring physically distanced well wishes to Coach K and to pick up a commemorative poster and X cookie.
