A 62-1 record after seven years with Team USA more than tells the story of the great Coach K.

More than anything else, Mike Krzyzewski is known for his 32 years and counting with the Duke Blue Devils. Yet, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein, that will now officially be his only coaching job with these 2012 London Olympics in the books.

This is a swift blow, to say the least, for the Americans to recover from. College basketball guru Dick Vitale put it best via Twitter.

 

It will be difficult to replace the amount of respect he has from the players, his will to win and intelligence as a head coach. But without Coach K, all Team USA can do is get on with the search and find that best fit.

These are the surefire 10 best candidates to replace Coach K and his greatness displayed at the FIBA championships and Olympics.
