Popovich is slated to coach the squad until 2020. Krzyzewski will coach the team for the 2016 Olympics and move to a special advisory role under Jerry Colangelo after that.
The 66-year-old Popovich has been an assistant coach for three national teams that had an overall record of 29-7. Ideally, his new job will lead to plenty of surly interviews with international media.
