Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski offered an olive branch to Duke fans on Wednesday, according to Derek Saul of the Duke Chronicle, after shouting at the student section for chanting at Pittsburgh head coach and Duke alum Jeff Capel on Tuesday night:

During Duke's 79-67 win, the team's fans playfully chanted,"Jeff Capel, sit with us," per ESPN. Coach K took exception to the chant, animatedly telling the student section to "shut up" while adding that Capel "is one of us."

After the game, he apologized for his response.
