Doc Rivers downplays possibility of leaving Celtics

Celtics coach Doc Rivers downplayed the report that he was considering leaving the team at season’s end. He said he evaluates his future with the team each summer, taking into consideration his family more than anything else. He acknowledged, however, that this year has been a difficult one, challenging him to find ways to motivate a team plagued by injuries and inconsistency.

“I would say what I’ve said for the last three years,” Rivers said. “This is old news. I don’t think about it to be honest.”
