Top player = top coach?

Are Lindsay Gaze and Sandy Brondello the only players who have played for their country and then gone on to be head coach of their country?

Who, apart from Luc Longley, have gone from representing their country to helping to coach their country?

Looking at NZ, Pero Cameron was an outstanding Tall Black and assistant coach for them twice.

Did Vucinic play for NZ? I found one Wikipedia page which said that he did, but another which said he didn't, so I’m confused.

Barry Barnes (Head Coach, World Champs as player)

Other assistant coaches come n go, some have been short term roles. I think:
Bradtke, Longley, Nielsen, might have had coaching roles.

Bogut will have a role in future.

Opals, maybe Jan Stirling,
