Once the gold medal game was completed, many media members ask what's next for the Minnesota connections, Hugh McCutcheon and Gopher alum Lindsey Berg. McCutcheon will take over at the helm of Golden Gopher Volleyball once his USA commitments have been completed. Berg has been vocal that the 2012 London Games were her third and her last Olympics.

In the recent days, various members of the media, both local and national, have covered the Minnesota duo. USA Volleyball's Bill Kauffman wrote a sidebar on their next career step. The Associated Press added an article that was picked up by various national media outlets, including St. Paul Pioneer Press, ESPN and Yahoo Sports. Locally, Star Tribune's Patrick Reusse watched the gold medal match with McCutcheon's future team, your Golden Gophers.

While Team USA didn't win the gold medal, a great accomplishment was set by winning its second straight silver. In Kauffman's article Berg states that she lives with no regrets and "if I went back, I wouldn't change a thing."

McCutcheon is ready for a new challenge as he prepares to coach his first collegiate team. As his USA tenure winds down, McCutcheon said "It has been a privilege to coach this team and I will do my best to positively influence the group that we have to work at Minnesota."
