02:53 PM ET 05.22 | USA Basketball has its head coach for the 2016 Summer Olympics, and it's a familiar face. Duke Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski will return to his old role with Team USA for the next Olympic cycle, hopefully leading the Americans to a third consecutive gold medal in Rio De Janeiro roughly three years from now. Coach K announced his plans to leave the program this winter following the team's gold-medal victory in Beijing last summer, but apparently became convinced over time to return for another go. Since being hired by Team USA chairman Bryan Colangelo in 2005, Krzyzewski has posted a 62-1 record as head coach of the team, returning the Americans to the top of the international basketball world following a bronze-medal finish at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. Coach K's work with Team USA begins again this summer as the team prepares for the 2014 FIFA Basketball World Cup, which will be held in Spain.

Who is this guy? Who do he think he is? America win because of the talent difference over all the other international teams not because of Coach "K". Hell, I can coach the American team if I had that talent pool.
