US announces assistants for women's hoops camp
Doug Bruno, Pokey Chatman, Jennifer Rizzotti and Dawn Staley will assist Geno Auriemma at the U.S. women's basketball training camp in Las Vegas this weekend.
Bruno was an assistant on the 2012 Olympic team while Staley helped the U.S. to a gold as an assistant coach at the 2008 Beijing Games. She also won three Olympic gold medals as a player from 1996-2004.
Rizzotti has coached some of the younger U.S. women's basketball teams, including leading the U-19 squad to a gold medal at the world championship in 2011.
Chatman will be making her appearance with the national team. She was an assistant on the 2005 world university games squad.
Assisting at the camp doesn't guarantee that they will be helping out at the world championship next Fall in Turkey. Teams are only allowed three assistant coaches at the worlds.
