Tony Granato, former coach of the Avalanche and the current coach at Wisconsin, has been tapped to coach the U.S. men's team for the 2018 Olympics, a source told ESPN's John Buccigross.

Granato, 53, left a job as an assistant coach for the Detroit Red Wings to take the Wisconsin position in March 2016. 

Former NHL veteran Chris Chelios, Penguins executive Scott Young and Yale coach Keith Allain have been hired as assistant coaches, the source told ESPN's Buccigross.
