Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma calls out a play in the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Villanova on Saturday, Jan. 14, 2012, in Villanova, Pa. Connecticut won 72-49.

Doug Bruno, Marynell Meadors and Jen Gillom will serve as assistant coaches with the U.S. women's basketball team at this summer's London Olympics.

The trio were announced Friday at a press conference in Chicago. They will assist head coach Geno Auriemma.

Bruno's 21st-ranked DePaul team will face No. 3 Connecticut and Auriemma on Saturday night in a Big East game. Meadors guided the Atlanta Dream to the WNBA finals this past season, and Gillom was hired this week as an assistant for the Washington Mystics. Gillom won a gold medal as a player in the 1988 Olympics.

The three were all part of the staff that won the FIBA World Championships in 2010 to earn the U.S. an automatic bid to the London Games.

The Olympic team will be selected this spring from the 27-member national team pool that includes Tamika Catchings, Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird, Maya Moore, Candace Parker, Sylvia Fowles and college junior Brittney Griner.

The Olympics begin July 27.
