Celtics Hire Stevens

After over a week when Doc Rivers was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers, the Boston Celtics have announced their new head coach. Brad Stevens. Here's a little about Stevens for those who don't know. graduate from DePauw University in 1999, Stevens was a always a basketball man. Immediately after college, Stevens worked as a volunteer in the Butler basketball office before being appointed to an assistant coach position in 2001. Stevens worked as an assistant up until 2007 when he was named head coach of the Butler Bulldogs. In just his second year there, at just 32 years old, he brought Butler a Horizon Tournament Championship. The next year he would win the Horizon Conference coach of the year award. In 2009 he brought little old Butler to a National Championship appearance where they lost to Duke. Fluke? No. The very next year, Stevens would bring Butler back to another National Championship where they lost again to UConn. At just 36, Stevens will become the youngest head coach in the NBA. Clearly Boston is going young. So how will someone like Rajon Rondo react to this decision? Early reports say Rondo is staying put but the he can't be to pleased. As much as I like the Stevens hiring, I think it will take him at least a year or two before he has this Celtics team back in the playoffs.
