STATE COLLEGE, Pa.-- College coaching greats Mike Krzyzewski and Joe Paterno will meet on the same stage at Penn State to discuss coaching, ethics and other issues for a show to air on ESPN.

The network will tape the discussion between Duke's basketball coach and Penn State's football coach before an invitation-only audience June 20 at Eisenhower Auditorium on the Penn State campus.

The program, "Difference Makers: Life Lessons with Paterno & Krzyzewski," is scheduled to air on ESPN and ESPNU on June 30.

Former players for both coaches are also expected to attend. An ESPN spokesman said Wednesday that students from both campuses would be able to ask questions.
