Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski, a.k.a. Coach K, has said that after this current Blue Devils season, he will be done as the coach of Team USA.
In an interview with ESPN Radio‘s “Mike & Mike in the Morning,” Coach K says USA Basketball will probably name the new head coach this summer, as they look ahead to the 2014 world championships in Madrid.
“I’ve loved, loved, loved, and it’s been an honor, being with the USA Basketball team,” says Coach K. “And to coach the team and work with [chairman and president Jerry Colangelo] for seven years has been marvelous. We’re in a good spot. We need to keep building.”
Under Coach K, Team USA earned back-to-back gold medals in Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012, after a disappointing bronze medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
