Celtics Hire Butler’s Brad Stevens
With Doc Rivers gone, the Celtics will begin a new era with 36-year-old Brad Stevens as the head coach.
John’s Take: You have to love this move. Stevens has earned his stripes by leading the Butler Bulldogs to two NCAA championship games. His knowledge of the game should transfer well in the professional ranks.
I do believe that this deal will require the Celtics to get rid of Rajon Rondo. If Rondo was willing to butt heads with the well-repsected Rivers, imagine the turmoil that will transpire with Stevens on a team that is rebuilding. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer)
