|Colangelo Still Hopes Coach K Will be Back in 2016
|LONDON (AP) -- Jerry Colangelo will see if he can persuade Mike Krzyzewski to return as U.S. men's Olympic basketball coach.
Krzyzewski has said he believes the London Games will be his last time coaching the national team. Colangelo says he thinks that is probably true, however, the USA Basketball chairman adds that he's ''not 100 percent sure myself that he's done.''
Colangelo says he will discuss the future with Krzyzewski at an appropriate time.
After Krzyzewski led the Americans to the 2008 gold medal, Colangelo secured his commitment to return for another run over pizza and a bottle of wine. Colangelo said Monday that they'll ''have pizza and wine again. We'll see if it works a second time.''
Krzyzewski says they can worry about that if they win.
