08:13 AM ET 08.01 | Doc Rivers may wind up even closer to the Olympic experience. He's come to London to work in the studio for NBC Sports on Olympic basketball, but his trip's been an excuse to grab a notebook and visit Spain and Brazil and Argentina practices. He has a resume with USA Basketball, including one job as a gold-medal assistant in the Goodwill Games. USA Basketball will be searching for a national team coach in 2016, and however the structure of Olympic basketball changes, Rivers is an ideal candidate. [Gregg Popovich] deserves the foremost consideration, but that will never happen with Jerry Colangelo running USA Basketball. ... If a mutual distaste with Colangelo won't allow Popovich the opportunity, Rivers deserves close examination.

Duke head coach can't always remain as the coach. It appears as if the only coach can only be Duke's head coach, give someone else a chance a glory, god damn America.
