Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski will return as the head coach of the USA Basketball Men’s team for the 2016 Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, according to a report by Sports Illustrated. Krzyzewski is the winningest coach in NCAA Division I men's basketball history. He has led Team USA to gold medals at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.


He will return as the head coach of the USA Basketball Men’s team for the 2016 Olympics in Rio De Janeiro. There will be a formal announcement this week. Previously after last year’s Olympics Coach K noted that the London games would be his last run.

USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo was confident about Coach K coming back even though Kryzewski stated after the London games he was done. Colangelo waited until the end of Duke's season in March to persuade Krzyzewski.
