By  | 

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski made it clear: He's not going to ever be the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Krzyzewski held his annual summer meeting with reporters Tuesday, and one of the first topics he covered was talk that had him taking over the Los Angeles Lakers if Phil Jackson retires.

Krzyzewski said he is "not going to the Lakers" and that he won't leave Duke "until I leave coaching."

Krzyzewski, who guided the U.S. men's basketball team to the gold medal at the Beijing Games, also said the coach for the 2012 Olympics will be announced on July 21 in Las Vegas.
