Krzyzewski coached Team USA to back-to-back gold medals in 2008 and 2012 and after the games in London said he was wouldn’t be back for 2016. Rumors swirled that Team USA chairman Jerry Colangelo would target Celtics head coach Doc Rivers and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, but it sounds like he’s convinced Krzyzewski.

Colangelo stated that the situation would be resolved in the next week or so as LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant gear up for another run at a gold medal in three years.

Coach K took over an Olympic team that significantly underachieved in the 2004 games and has helped overhaul the entire program. As the head of the program, Coach K has made NBA players want to play in the Olympics as the players love playing for him.
