College coaches think Stevens will succeed
Brad Stevens has a big challenge moving to the NBA as coach of the Boston Celtics. Massachusetts college coaches, though, are optimistic he can make the jump from Butler.
And he might even start a trend, one of those coaches says.
"I think he'll do well and it probably will open some doors," Holy Cross coach Milan Brown said Thursday. "It'll make some general managers and presidents go, `Who's the next Brad?"
Brown was one of seven Division I coaches at an event Thursday promoting a tripleheader involving six of those teams on Nov. 10 at TD Garden in Boston. Stevens, hired in early July after Doc Rivers left to become coach of the Los Angeles Clippers, also attended.
