The @Celtics have hired Brad Stevens as their next head coach. Press Release: http://on.nba.com/12ecykU 

 

 

BOSTON – The Boston Celtics announced today that they have come to an agreement with Brad Stevens to be the 17th head coach of the team. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not announced.

Stevens, age 36, has served for the past six years as the head coach of Butler University, never winning fewer than 22 games and leading the Bulldogs to two national championship games against Duke and Connecticut. He was the youngest coach to reach the Final Four since Bob Knight in 1973.

That's a "GREAT" move for the Celtics. Brad Stevens is an incredible coach who has transformed that Butler program into something highly respectable.

Interesting hire.  Seems weird that he would want to come into a rebuilding situation like that, either the Celtics offered him a bunch of money or promised him job security for a few years

 

I think he is a great coach though, and he will have his choice of big time college programs if he doesnt adjust well the the NBA
