Jerry Colangelo won’t seek a third term as chairman of USA Basketball, instead focusing on his role as managing director of the men’s national team program.
Colangelo said Thursday that he will concentrate on the transition from coach Mike Krzyzewski to Gregg Popovich and building the player pool for the competition cycle through the 2020 Olympics.
Retired Gen. Martin Dempsey, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is the leading candidate to replace Colangelo, according to an official who has been briefed on the plans. USA Basketball’s board of directors will vote on Dempsey’s candidacy at its annual meeting on Nov. 14, the official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details were to remain private ahead of the vote.
