Found February 26, 2013 on Fox Sports Carolinas:
For those listening to Mike Krzyzewski since he led Team USA basketball to yet another gold medal this past summer, Tuesday's news came as little surprise: Duke's head coach confirmed to media members he will no longer coach the national team. "I've loved, loved, loved, and it's been an honor being with the USA Basketball team," Krzyzewski said in an ESPN Radio interview. "And to coach the team and work with (Team USA president) Jerry (Colangelo) for seven years has been marvelous." With four national championships and two gold medals to his name, Coach K is the winningest coach in men's college basketball. He was named the national team's head coach in 2006. Colangelo and his staff are expected to name Krzyzewski's successor in the coming months in preparation for the 2014 FIBA Championships and the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
