Davidson coach Bob McKillop will serve as the team's head coach, and South Carolina coach Frank Martin will be an assistant coach alongside Beilein.

Congratulations to John Beilein on this honor, and while it is his first time as an assistant, he gets to be one with a team representing the United States, so there's that. Very cool.

I believe he's been a court coach at some of their training camps in the past, but this is a nice bit of recognition for his achievements as a head coach in college basketball.

Do you think they should rest the coaches in the early rounds so they don't get too tired for the regular season?

(not sure if I should start a thread for this topic)

From the award site:

The Skip Prosser Award was established in 2008 to honor those who not only achieve success on the basketball court but who display moral integrity off of it as well.

Although it doesn't say anything about moral integrity on the court, Tom Crean is not one of the other finalists.
