Krzyzewski again says he won’t be back as US coach
NEW YORK — Mike Krzyzewski says again he doesn’t plan to return as U.S. men’s basketball coach after leading the Americans to two Olympic gold medals.
Saying “my stance hasn’t changed,” Krzyzewski tells ESPN Radio on Tuesday he expects USA Basketball to name a new coach this summer.
The Hall of Fame Duke coach said during and after last summer’s Olympics that he wasn’t planning to return to the position he’s held with the national team since 2005. However, he still hasn’t confirmed that decision with USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo, who has said they will talk after the college season.
Krzyzewski led the Americans to Olympic gold in 2008 and 2012, and a world basketball championship in 2010. He tells ESPN Radio that he’s “loved, loved, loved” holding the job.
