Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau and New Orleans Pelicans coach Monty Williams will join the U.S. men's basketball coaching staff under Mike Krzyzewski, according to Brian Mahoney of the Associated Press.
Thibodeau and Williams will replace Mike D'Antoni and Nate McMillan and be on the staff for at least the next three years. D'Antoni and McMillan had both worked under Krzyzewski since 2005, helping the U.S. win two gold medals.
Both Thibodeau and Williams are defensive-minded coaches, with the Bulls' headmaster considered one of the top defensive minds in the NBA. Thibodeau's Bulls have been in the top three of points allowed in all three of his seasons as head coach.
The lone holdover of Krzyzewski's staff is Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, who decided to stay on board due to his close relationship with the Duke coach.
The next major event for Team USA is the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup, which will take place in Spain.
