Danny Ainge got tired of Brad Stevens destroying his NCAA bracket, so he hired him to coach the Celtics
The Celtics have hired former Butler coach Brad Stevens as their new head coach, giving him a chance to lead the rebuilding effort in Boston.
Stevens was a huge success at Butler, where he let the Bulldogs to two National Championship game appearances, where they lost to powerhouses UConn and Duke.
There's no telling how Stevens' style will translate to the NBA, but this seems like an excellent hire by the Celtics, and one that comes pretty much out of nowhere.
The Celtics actually broke the news themselves in a statement from the team. This is actually highly unusual, since most news of this nature is revealed by NBA writers like Chris Broussard, or his "source," Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski's Twitter feed.
Personally, I tend to think that this means the departure of Rajon Rondo is imminent, as I'm not completely sure that he's the right kind of guy to lead a team coached by one of the youngest coaches ever. I could be wrong, but it just feels like Rondo is trade bait at this point.
What do you think of the Celtics hiring Brad Stevens? Is it a good move?
