Celtics Hire Brad Stevens as New Head Coach

The Boston Celtics and Brad Stevens have come to an agreement for him to become the 17th head coach of the team. He will be leading the charge as the Celtics embark on their current rebuilding phase.

Stevens is 36 years old, and has served for the past six years as the head coach of Butler University. Along the way he lead the Bulldogs to two national championship games against Connecticut and Duke. He was the youngest coach to reach the Final Four since Bob Knight in 1973.

GM Danny Ainge has released a statement on the hiring of their new head coach.

“Brad and I share a lot of the same values,” said Ainge. “Though he is young, I see Brad as a great leader who leads with impeccable character and a strong work ethic. His teams always play hard and execute on both ends of the court. Brad is a coach who has already enjoyed lots of success, and I look forward to working with him towards Banner 18.”

Not a huge surprise that the Celtics went with a coach like Stevens, but someone with an impressive resume at his age is a huge pick up, and it is all apart of the Celtics rebuilding the team.

Stevens will be introduced to the media at 11 a.m. on Friday.
