Doc Rivers to Return Next Season
General Manager of the Boston Celtics, Danny Ainge, confirmed that head coach Doc Rivers will be returning next season. "Yeah (he'll be back), Doc and I are talking about our team next year," Danny Ainge said. "(No suspense) from my perspective. We've got a great coach. We've got a coach everybody would love to have and he's got three years left on his contract and I think Doc likes Boston, too. You guys are the only one (who made it an issue)."
Doc still has three more years left on his five-year contract, however, there was some speculation that Rivers would terminate his contract as soon as KG and Paul Pierce would leave the team. But it seems as though Doc is willing to stay with the Celtics irrespective of whether or not what is left of the original Big 3 returns.
