That didn’t take long. Only a few days after Mike Kryzlkjewrowieski announced he would step down as head coach of Team USA after the 2016 Summer Olympics, USA Basketball has announced that Gregg Popovich will take his spot. The longtime San Antonio Spurs coach will be the head coach of Team USA from 2017-2020, which could include the 2019 FIBA World Cub in China and the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo, Japan.
Pop’s a great choice, but I was really rooting for Calipari to get it. Oh well.
