Chicago native Mike Krzyzewski's Blue Devils are out of the NCAA Tournament, but that doesn't mean he won't be watching this weekend's Final Four games. But, what would happen if the Cubs home opener was on the same day as those games?

He was asked that question on Wednesday's edition of "The Dan Patrick Show" and Coach K said it would be a tough decision.

"Can we only have one Christmas present?" Krzyzewski responded.

"The Dan Patrick Show" airs Monday-Friday from 8:00-11:00 a.m. on Comcast SportsNet.

Texas Rangers hire Cubs' Shiraz Rehman to be assistant GM

The changing of the guard continues for the Cubs this offseason. 

After the team hired a new hitting coach yesterday, it was reported today that they're losing a front office member: 

Rehman, who has been with the Cubs in the same position for the last seven years, will reportedly head up the Rangers' analytics department. According to the Chicago Tribune, Rehman's role was " evaluating existing systems, and recognizing and applying solutions in an effort to create competitive advantages for the organization." 

All reports indicate that he'll be doing similar analytic-based work with the Rangers.
