Mike Krzyzewski done as coach of Team USA


Mike Krzyzewski said he is done as coach of USA Basketball and will not coach in the 2014 world championships in Madrid.

During an interview with ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike in the Morning”, Krzyzewski said USA Basketball will likely name his successor this summer.

“I’ve loved, loved, loved, and it’s been an honor being with the USA Basketball team,” Krzyzewski said. “And to coach the team and work with [chairman and president Jerry Colangelo] for seven years has been marvelous.

Krzyzewski was hired following a disappointing sixth-place finish at the 2002 worlds in Indianapolis and a bronze medal at the 2004 Olympics in Greece.
