Brad Stevens named Celtics head coach

Brad Stevens
Brad Stevens has been named as the new head coach of the Boston Celtics (National Basketball Association) at the age of just 36-years old. The American comes to Boston from Butler (NCAA) where he was head coach since 2007, twice guiding the team to Championship games against Duke and Connecticut. He also became the youngest coach since Bob Knight in 1973 to reach the Final Four.

Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge explained the reason the franchise chose the largely untested Brad Stevens.

“Brad and I share a lot of the same values, 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.”
