Doug Bruno, Marynell Meadors and Jennifer Gillom will serve as assistant coaches with the U.S. women's basketball team at this summer's London Olympics, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the official announcement won't come until a Friday press conference in Chicago. Bruno's 21st-ranked DePaul team will face No. 3 Connecticut and Olympic head coach Geno Auriemma on Saturday night in a Big East game. Meadors guided the Atlanta Dream to the WNBA finals this past season, and Gillom was hired as an assistant for the Washington Mystics on Tuesday. The three were all part of the staff that won the FIBA World Championships in 2010 to earn the U.S. an automatic bid to the London Games. The Olympics begin July 27.
