LAS VEGAS (AP) — Mike Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEF’-skee) was fully convinced his Olympic duties were over. Team USA had just won its second straight gold medal in London, and he said he was done as coach.
But Jerry Colangelo, the managing director for USA Basketball, says Krzyzewski started showing signs of possibly returning just a few weeks after the London Games. He made it official in the spring and is in Las Vegas this week to begin early preparations for one more run.
The Americans are holding a four-day camp this week with a roster filled with young players who have no Olympic experience. But with no competition until next summer, there’s plenty of time for grooming.
