2012 Olympics Will Be Mike Krzyzewski's Last Interntational Competition As Team USA Coach

Mike Krzyzewski has been the head coach of the U.S. Men's National Basketball Team going as far back as 1990 for the FIBA World Championship in Argentina, and again starting in 2006 where he has led the team through a revival including a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. His impressive international resume will apparently conclude with the 2012 London Olympics.

The head coach of the Duke Blue Devils is 65 years old and perhaps weary of the grind coaching NBA superstars in the offseason on top of running one of college basketball's most storied programs. San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was suggested as a possible replacement for Coach K by LeBron James earlier this year.
