Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski has decided to return to USA Basketball, and coach Team USA through the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

Coach K also has decided to make a few coaching changes after losing Mike D’Antoni and Nate McMillan to the rigors of the NBA.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau and the New Orleans Pelican’s head coach Monty Williams will join the staff of Team USA, according to the Associated Press.

Both are known as defensive specialists, with strong work ethics, which should definitely take advantage of the athletic, helter skelter type of defense Team USA likes to play.
