The USA Basketball Men’s National Team program is headed by Jerry Colangelo, who has served as managing director of the USA Men’s National Team since 2005 and is the chairman of USA Basketball. Mike Krzyzewski, USA and Duke University head coach, will be assisted by Syracuse University and Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim, and former NBA head coaches Mike D’Antoni and Nate McMillan.
Since Colangelo and Krzyzewski became involved in the USA National Team, the U.S. has compiled a sterling 49-1 record (.980 winning percentage) and just as importantly reestablished the USA national team and its members as positive ambassadors for the United States and the sport.
