A WNBA coach has only done it once, so I didn't want to include them.
Figured it's a bigger, more involved job than just assistant coaching.

I like going to someone other than a college coach, so yeah, Reeve would be ok...though I guess we would complain if she put Brunson on the team.

Other.

The team is basically made up of pro players and pro coaches already scout and know the players skill sets. College coaches can still be in the mix to assist.
Reeve, White, even Staley would be cool. Mike Thibault has been a Natl team assistant in the past, could throw him in the mix too.

But regardless, some politics will continue to play a part and a committee is still going to play its role in the selection process.

That'd be a clever idea to help AUS's chances of winning.

I voted for Geno because he's an impossible homer

When Anne Donovan was named the National Team Head Coach in 2006 she was the Seattle Storm Head Coach, she did resign from the Storm in 2007, but there was no expectation of her resignation before 2008 by USA Basketball. So technically USA Basketball has named a WNBA Coach twice, but things happened outside of their control so one of those people was no longer a WNBA Coach at the time of the Olympics, but she was when she was named the National Team Head Coach.

The Dawn Staley love makes no sense. Is her one Final Four run really that impressive?

I like Hammon. Putting Parkergate aside, I'm still happy with Geno - unless he loses. White is good. As for Reeve - why pick up Darth Vader when you can get the Emperor (Evil Bill)?

It makes perfect sense. She's currently an assistant.

So is Doug Bruno and he has very little support. So is Cheryl Reeve and she wasn't considered a serious enough candidate to even get listed. What makes Staley so special?

I hear she's looking for a new job now. Would all the American players still need to forfeit the WNBA season? Wink

I'm with you.
I think her inflated reputation is based largely on her name recognition as a player. I haven't seen much suggesting she's a great x's and o's coach.

Personally I'd probably pick Doug Bruno before her. He certainly has a better temperment.

Bruno is like Auriemma in sheep's clothing. Smile

I find it amazing Dave would choose Reeve over another round of Auriemma. UConn-fatigue from one of its biggest homers?

Great question ... I voted for McGraw off the list, but Reeve would be a good choice.

I'm guessing the next coach will be female -- it would be more than ironic if Hammon wound up coaching (or does her participation in the Olympics as a Russian disqualify her?).

It doesn't disqualify her in terms of FIBA or the IOC. Whether USAB would select her is another matter altogether.

I voted for Reeve, but I did not think of Hammon. I like that choice also.

I much prefer a pro coach to a college coach for the next Oly coach. Will that happen? idk. It feels like USA Basketball has set up Staley as the heir apparent.

Of the current batch of assistants, I'd like to see Reeves get the job.

We could split the difference btwn college coaching experience & pro coaching experience and pick Gail Goestenkors. She has USA Basketball experience and WNBA assistant experience. And she's not a current head coach so that might give some space in terms of favoritism claims.
