COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Three experienced head coaches -- DePaul University's Doug Bruno, the Minnesota Lynx' Cheryl Reeve, and South Carolina's Dawn Staley -- have been selected as assistant coaches for the 2014 USA Basketball Women's World Championship Team, officials announced Monday.

Bruno and Staley were assistant coaches for USA Basketball at the FIBA World Championship and Olympic Games, Bruno in 2010 and 2012, and Staley in 2006 and 2008. Reeve has a pair of WNBA titles as a head coach with the Lynx (2011, 2013) and two as an assistant coach with the Detroit Shock (2006, 2008).

The three coaches will work with USA and Connecticut head coach Geno Auriemma to prepare the 2014 USA World Championship Team.

"I think we've got a great mix," said Auriemma in a statement released by team officials. "We certainly have enough experience, both USA Basketball-wise, college, pro; we have a mix of personalities that I think is going to be really, really good. We have some continuity with Doug back. We have an opportunity to bring in some younger coaches, who hopefully aspire down the road to be head coaches at USA Basketball. They're proven winners."

The USA National Team's training camp will run Sept. 7-10 at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., and team will compete in the 2014 FIBA World Championship in Istanbul, Turkey, from Sept. 27-Oct. 5.
