Rivers, Popovich Considered Top Candidates To Become Next USA Head Coach
Doc Rivers and Gregg Popovich are considered the top candidates to replace Mike Krzyzewski as head coach of the United States, according to sources.
Jerry Colangelo will remain in his current position for one more Olympics and will give Krzyzewski some time to reconsider remaining.
Sources say Rick Pitino has expressed strong interest in the position, but an NBA coach is widely expected to eventually land the job.
Mike D'Antoni and Nate McMillan, current Team USA assistants without a permanent job with a team, are considered longshots.
