Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

USA Basketball official announced its 2013-16 coaching staff Monday, and as expected Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim was a member of the star-studded staff.

USA Basketball officially announced Monday the squad's assistant coaches, and as expected Syracuse Orange head coach Jim Boeheim will be a member of the star-studded staff.

Led by head coach Mike Krzysewski and Boeheim, Team USA will also be led by Tom Thibodeau (Chicago Bulls) and Monty Williams (New Orleans Pelicans).

"I’m really excited about the USA Basketball National Team coaching staff," said Krzyzewski. "To work with Jim Boeheim again, who’s as close of a friend as you can have in this profession and also one of the brilliant coaches in the history of our game, to have him right along side me is fantastic. We’ve done that for the last seven years, we’re going to do it for four more.

In the press release, Boeheim said he was excited about another opportunity to win another gold medal with Team USA.

"I've had a number of tremendous coaching experiences in the game of basketball and certainly working on the staff for the USA Basketball Men's National Team has been one of them," said Boeheim. "I know we are all excited to get the group together again and work toward winning a third straight gold medal.

"I can't imagine a greater honor for a coach than having the opportunity to represent your country in international competition and especially at the Olympics."

As an assistant coach for Team USA (2006-'12), Boeheim has a nearly unblemished record of 62-1, including gold medals at the Beijing and London Olympics.
