Alex Barlow, a former point guard for Butler under Brad Stevens, has been hired by the Boston Celtics as a video assistant. Barlow is ecstatic to get to work under his old coach as he joins the NBA ranks fresh out of college.
Two years ago, when (Stevens) left to work for the Celtics, I didn't know what was going to happen. I don't know that I could have told you that I'd work for the Celtics out of college. Two years later that opportunity has presented itself, and it's everything I could have asked for.
Hearing about a former player specifically seeking out opportunities to work with Brad Stevens is a great testament to him as a person and a professional.
Barlow has a lot to offer as a young assistant; he was an academic All-American who brings the Celtics a passion for basketball and a desire to grow as a coach.
