11:31 AM ET 06.10 | Mike Krzyzewski looked like he'd be on his way out as Team USA's head coach after winning two gold medals. Surprisingly, he decided to return for another go-around, but his coaching staff will look different from the one that coached the Americans in Beijing and London. Mike D'Antoni and Nate McMillan won't return as assistants for the men's national basketball team, and a source told the Associated Press' Brian Mahoney that Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau and New Orleans Pelicans coach Monty Williams will replace them. That new duo will team with Krzyzewski and Syracuse Jim Boeheim, who returns to the Team USA staff.

Coach K won't be comfortable leaving Team USA until he knows its in good hands. The guy is a West Point grad. Leaving his national team in the best possible situation is crucial to him.

Awesome move; I have been craving for this from a LONG time. Get some younger coaches to assist coach K. Monty and Tibs are awesome choices. Way to go USA!!!!!
