Brad Stevens: Boston Celtics new head coach

(WOIO) -

The Boston Celtics are one of the most storied franchises in NBA history, with the ability to attract almost any head coach they desire, but on Wednesday night, Danny Ainge stunned the basketball world, turning to 36-year old Butler coach Brad Stevens to replace Doc Rivers on the bench.

"Though he is young, I see Brad as a great leader who leads with impeccable character and a strong work ethic" Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said in a release. "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."
