Syracuse University coach Jim Boeheim, Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau, and New Orleans Pelicans head coach and former USA Basketball player Monty Williams were announced as USA Basketball Menâ€™s National Team assistant coaches for 2013-16 by USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo.
Colangelo is an Illini and a South Suburbanite by the way!
Duke â€śnot just a basketball coach, but a leader who happens to coach basketballâ€ť Mike Krzyzewski will return to lead the USA National Team program for a third quadrennium. And no, I have no clue what a quadrennium is.
â€śTo have Tom Thibodeau join us, I think his reputation speaks for itself. He was a great assistant who has become an outstanding pro coach, and nobody wants to play the Bulls. The toughness that they show, their togetherness, their competitiveness, and the preparation that is there, that is shown by he and his staff,â€ť Coach K. said.
