Celtics hire Brad Stevens as head coach
 
In a fairly shocking move, the Boston Celtics announced today that they have come to an agreement with Brad Stevens to be the 17th head coach of the team.

Stevens, age 36, has served for the past six years as the head coach of Butler University men’s basketball team, never winning fewer than 22 games and leading the Bulldogs to two national championship games against Duke and Connecticut. His career win percentage is .772, including a 33-5 season in 2009-10. He was also the youngest coach to reach the Final Four since Bob Knight in 1973.

I feel bad for Celtics fans. Brad's teams are really tough to watch.

I was hoping for someone more like Alvin Gentry :( Last time the Celtics hired a college coach it was Rick Pitino, and he was terrible.

It's A VC3!!! 07-03-2013 06:43 PM

What I fine very impressive is how not one word of this was leaked and that this hiring is coming out of nowhere. I knew that the Nets were going to hire Jason Kidd one week before they actually hired him. Props to the Celtics for not leaking anything.

I mean really this is just tanking, although Gentry would be trying to win games, so he's kind of like that dude.
