NEW YORK — Mike Krzyzewski said again Tuesday 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 told ESPN Radio 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. “I’ve loved, loved, loved, and it’s been an honor being with the USA Basketball team,” Krzyzewski said in the interview. “And to coach the team and work with Jerry these seven years has been marvelous. “And we’re in a good spot,” Krzyzewski added. “We need to keep building.” Krzyzewski led the Americans to Olympic gold in 2008 and 2012, and a world basketball championship in 2010.
