Doc Rivers one of few candidates for the Olympics head coaching position

As has been rumored and reported since the Olympics in London, Doc Rivers is still on the short list of head coaching candidates for the Olympics in Rio.

Doc Rivers and Doug Collins were standing just feet apart on the sideline as the Celtics [team stats] met the 76ers, and their names have been in even closer proximity in regards to a job opening. The two are among the few names being mentioned most prominently as potential head coaches of the United States men’s national team for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. In separate discussions yesterday, they both took steps to assert they are not campaigning for the position. "Honestly, I’ve given it zero thought," Rivers said. "It’d be an honor, but that’s out of my hands."

Sounds like a great experience. Hope he gets it.
