Duke gets re-energized Mike Krzyzewski thanks to NBA superstars, Olympic challenge

Friday, May 24, 2013

In 2006, Duke's Mike Krzyzewski was set to "save" the United States Olympic basketball team. All those rich NBA stars supposedly needed a college coach to hammer some discipline into them. Or so that's where some of the narratives went. Seven years and two gold medals later, Krzyzewski announced Thursday he would continue coaching the team through the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. (Yahoo!
