Coach K Returning to Team USA

By  | 

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Mike Krzyzewski coached the Americans back to
the top and he's sticking around to help them stay there.

USA Basketball announced Tuesday that Krzyzewski will return to lead the United States in next summer's world championships and when it defends its gold medal in the 2012 Olympics.

The Americans won the championship last year in Beijing and will
bring the leadership of that team back for another run. Krzyzewski's entire staff of assistant coaches also will return - New York's Mike D'Antoni, Portland's Nate McMillan and Jim Boeheim of Syracuse.
