Duke's Krzyzewski stepping down as Team USA coach

The SportsXchange

Duke University men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski said Tuesday that he won't return to coach USA Basketball after the Blue Devils' season.

Krzyzewski told ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike in the Morning" that USA Basketball will likely announce his successor this summer in preparation for the 2014 world championships in Madrid.

"I've loved, loved, loved, and it's been an honor being with the USA Basketball team," Krzyzewski said. "And to coach the team and work with (chairman and president Jerry Colangelo) for seven years has been marvelous. And we're in a good spot. We need to keep building."

Under Krzyzewski, Team USA beat Spain in two straight Olympic finals, in 2008 Beijing and 2012 London. His team won the 2010 FIBA World Championship in Turkey without an Olympian on the roster.
